Subject: python interpreter feasible?

python interpreter feasible?

I realize that interpreted languages are dog slow and probably not
appropriate for most applications for low speed/memory devices like MP3
players, but I'm still curious how feasible or not it would be to get a
python interpreter (www.python.org) running on Rockbox. Python is written in
ANSI C and there is an ARM port, but I think it depends on POSIX. Also it
would probably want to dynamically allocate memory a lot. I realize it's a
long shot.
