OK - that's what I'm not getting. I tried the link in the original
post but my firefox browser sets off a bunch of security alarms
which I am reluctant to override. I guess the title "Python Port"
suggested to me that it was a port of the current system
to python.

Of course if I had understood that this is a whole new scripting language
building things like boost, I might have made a totally
different observation. As it stands, I have no idea
what's being attempted here.
