Like Steve, I believe being on would help facilitate our push to make Jython a first-class Python community project.

We can continue sharing with JRuby, not to mention other JVM language implementations, on jna-posix, constantine, and new projects like the regex engine, JSR-223 replacement/MOP, etc. But these components are -- and need to be -- more black box anyway for the sharing to work in practice. Kenai will continue to be a good place to host these and other related projects, much like we are using github (clamp) and googlecode (Django on Jython) as well.

I think it would be kind of cool to be a first class project.
