[Openmcl-devel] Embedding CPython in CCL

I know about CL-Python but the problem with that is that it doesn't  
track new versions of Python, and it can't load Python modules that  
are implemented in C.  It seems like it would not be too hard to embed  
the C-Python interpreter in CCL.  Not trivial to be sure, but no  
harder than, say, the Objective-C bridge.  That would allow CCL to  
completely subsume Python in terms of functionality and library  
coverage, which would kick ass.

So I have the usual questions: has someone already done this?  If not,  
is anyone interested in working on it, either collaboratively or for  
money?  If the latter, please send me a quote.
