  Description     : python interpreter implemented in python

Pypy is a simple runtime-system for the Python language, written in
Python itself. The project targets a large variety of platforms,
small and large, by providing a compilation toolsuite that can produce
custom Python versions. As of release 0.7.0, pypy features:

  * whole program type inference on our Python Interpreter
  implementation with full translation to two different machine-level
  targets: C and LLVM

  * a translation choice of using a refcounting or Boehm garbage

  * the ability to translate with or without thread support

  * very complete language-level compliancy with CPython 2.4.1

And more will come in future releases.
