Google plans to build a JITting VM for Python. There is,
of course already such a VM for Python today and it is very
mature - the .NET CLR running IronPython.

Interestingly, Google plans to use LLVM for this particular
effort. I have not really had the time to explore LLVM in
depth but apparently it has been really quite successful in
getting adopted by many different projects.
