look! pypy is working on cpython api compatibility! :)
so in the future once pypy is python 3.1 compatible (i am sure they
will work on it sooner or later) it should be possible to use pypy for
blender and solve the security issues.
and for numerical code pypy can be 10 times faster than cpython
already. another nice advantage.
