The Python development team values alternative implementations, as it 
gives Python the language a much wider user base.

It also allows other people to shoulder some of the development burden. 
For example, people who want Python without the limitations of the C 
call stack can use Stackless Python, instead of ordinary CPython. 
Google is sponsoring a highly optimized version of Python with a JIT 
compiler: Unladen Swallow. It looks likely that Unladen Swallow will 
end up being merged with CPython too, which will be a great benefit.
