Request for opinions: A cross language development tool

Bridge compiles Python modules into native code, which requires us to 
support Python *language* features (for, while, class, generators, etc) 
but it reuses CPython's libraries (list, dict, str, etc) so we don't 
implement those, and it also uses CPython's ast module in order to parse 
Python code. So once we are done supporting all of the language 
features, any Python code should work. Currently we have quite a few 
language features to implement, but we're working on it =) We're 
targeting Python 3.5.
