Well, there's the newish Micro python project. Its footprint is
apparently about 60 kB at a minimum (Thumb2 code on ARM). Their
kickstarter is at
and source at https://github.com/micropython/micropython

The kickstarter was for funding development and a small board with ST's
Cortex-M4 on it. The source code includes Windows and Unix targets so
it's easy to experiment with without a board too.
