Thank you for the explanation. For me it clears up any questions I had
wrt the future of jythonc. I didn't really realize just how big of a job
it was until I started looking at the Jythonc code. If I could help I
would offer to but that sort of work is currently beyond my coding
skills but maybe I could offer help in an my area of expertise, namely,
May I suggest that your answer be added to the Jython Wiki. If you don't
have the time, is it something I could do? with your permission, of

It is true that jythonc *in its current implementation* will be gone
in the next release (not 2.2 it is still there in that one -- but the
release after that). There will still be a command called "jythonc"
that will hopefully cover all of the use cases that the current
jythonc covers -- but instead of having a separate compiler it will
use the same compiler as interpreted jython (which does compile down
to bytecodes). This is still largely in the planning stages though.
The point of such a move is having just one implementation to work on
-- hopefully this will result in a better jython *and* a better
