Dear Mark Searborn and e-lang:
I chatted with the PyPy folks on their IRC channel, and they pointed
This shows that they are interested in the idea of secure execution,
but that they don't yet understand the notion of capabilities.
However, they are very smart and open-minded folks, so I encourage
you to work with them.
In contrast Guido van Rossum, when I spoke to him at the most recent
PyCon, emphatically told me "If you think that Python can be made
into a capability system then you do NOT understand Python!".
Shortly thereafter he ended our conversation in order to be
interviewed by a journalist.
