Hi Sean: Thanks for the blog on the DynLang summit. Tim Bray impresses
me that he's got staying power on this topic. I'm able to support his
efforts with writing, coding, and generally showing developers the path
to Jython. I love it!
You wrote about the difference between the Java platform and the Java
language. I would love to see Jython in Eclipse and NetBeans. Does that
wind up in the platform side of things?
