A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
Am i the only one who thinks a webserver implented in a language meant to be run by a webserver is kind of... crazy... and using it for production is kind of.. sick....?

Oh, I don't know if the original purpose of a language is really significant. Java was initially pushed also as a client-side technology (remember the infamous applets?). Perl was initially a scripting language, meant as a replacement for Bash. Lisp was designed as a language to make mathematical computations, and used for artificial intelligence. Python was designed for learning. Ruby was also created as a scripting language. All of these have been used successfully in web servers.
Besides, I think this retooling is kind of cool. When I first saw your message I misread:
and using it for production is kind of.. slick....?"
