I like Purescript (purescript.org) better than Coffeescript, but either
way, I don't see Python as an attractive target for that approach.
People code in Javascript because they have to (browser apps), so if
they hate the JS language but have to use it anyway, it's reasonable to
wrap a translation layer around it.  JS is basically used as a high
level assembly language.

By contrast, most people who use Python use it because they like it.
Sure there are warts here and there, but for the most part, if someone
doesn't like Python, they can pick something else that does the same
job.
