I completely agree with Marc. A rewrite of mh in a new language isn't a good idea. Too much development time has gone into too many relevant modules; by people who don't have the time to start those modules over from scratch.

It is a serious suggestion.  Modules that aren't important enough to be ported will be dropped.  I goes to the point of the original post.

You do realize this would mean rewriting _everything_ in misterhouse,
like about a hundred modules written by people who may or may not be
around now, and for hardware that he or you don't have therefore making
the new code untestable?

You have the right to prefer python (I'm personally mostly agnostic
between the 2), but this is not a serious suggestion, sorry.
