A project I have in the back of my mind goes something
like this:

1) Design an instruction set for a Python machine and
a microcode architecture to support it

2) Write a simulator for it

3) Use the simulator to evaluate how effective it would
be if actually implemented, e.g. in an FPGA.

And if I get that far:

4) (optional) Get hold of a real FPGA and implement it
