Well, CPyExt is a pure reimplementation of the API needed by the Python C extensions, and IronClad (last time I looked) reuses a lot of the actual CPython implementation. My thinking is that a pure reimplementation would be easier to port, reuse and maintain.
It's very interesting but I haven't looked at it at all yet, why would it easier for us to adopt?
