So you have repeated .NET, or Parrot, or the JVM. What is new in your
system that sets it apart from these?

Make sure you can do better than those:
http://ironpython.net/ (Python on .NET)
http://parrot.org/ (Python on the Perl-VM)
http://www.jython.org/ (Python on the JVM)
All of those projects promise a seamless integration of several
languages in a single VM. ALl of them have failed in the sense that the
languages have not converged onto that platform.
