"C" really- first things first.

Not really "based on"...
It's likely you spend a lot of time with CPython where there is a clear
distinction between the Python code and the C code. CXX,
extensionclasses, swig, etc make for a intimidating bump between
C and Python. However, it's this sense of boundary that evaporates in
Jython with ">>>import java". You just may not realize it at first :)
In other words, it is AWT, Swing and GUI components written for java
because you import things that are Java. The demos that are installed
with Jython include AWT and Swing demos.

Based on the above I'm tempted to say, "The future is here." But that
would be melodramatic, opportunistic and painful<wink>.
Do visit the docs at http://jython.sourceforge.net/docs/index.html
then just try and stop yourself from going to:
