hippocampus is a reflexion on the pertinence of developping a shared memory, object oriented, dynamic and reflexive language interpreter.

The idea behind this confusing words is to have a python's like environment able to share objects across multiple processes, removing the GIL but restrincting the use of this environment to data manipulation.

The motivation is to avoid all the ORM configuration, SQL manipulation and objects replications needed when using an rdbms.

I want to implementation the engine with C as it is a commonly known language and it has a good support of the linux's shared memory.
I have already done an encouraging poc with C and mmap.
