If anything, wouldn't the "big win" (if it's a win at all) be to get  
NumPy/SciPy working on top of the JVM (as T. Hochber tried)? This way  
it's pretty much universally portable.

I know Jython isn't as up to speed as IronPython, but the folks in  
Jython land are doing a pretty good job of it these days.

Their next "target" CPython compatibility will definitely be good  
enough for NumPy since it will be at least CPythoon 2.3 ... maybe  
even 2.5.
