Hi,

The new release of Pypy (Pypy 6, 
https://morepypy.blogspot.fr/2018/04/pypy27-and-pypy35-v60-dual-release.html
is impressive. The C-API compatibility layer cpyext is faster and better. 
Matplotlib (and numpy, pandas, scipy, h5py, mpi4py, cython) can now be used. 
Pypy could start to be a serious alternative to run scientific codes.

So what about using Pythran with Pypy ? It seems to me they could become very 
complementary tools...

Serge, do you think using Pythran with Pypy could be possible? And efficient?

Pierre
