This is good news for me, as I have been brewing window manager experiments myself in Python. It should prove valuable, as quick and dirty probing, then crystallizing is very enjoyable in that language.

Hopefully soon PyPy will have optimizing JIT, and it will apply to any dynamic language implemented in that framework so speed shouldn't be much of a problem in the near future.
