There are a few large hurdles to overcome first:
* we have various C modules such as zope.interface that won't work with
PyPy. Now there are plain python version of many of these, but that'd
need to be enabled and tested. And what about the ZODB? unfortunately we
have much code that goes very deep into Python internals. I do know that
people have hacked the ZTK to work on the google app engine which
doesn't allow custom C modules, but they used the app engine storage.
* buildout doesn't work with PyPy 1.4 yet. I'm testing it with PyPy
trunk in the context of another project, and hopefully we'll make
I am experimenting with PyPy in general a little bit, but it'll be a
long way off before Grok works with PyPy. Perhaps someone is
experimenting with making the ZTK run on PyPy - you could ask in zope-dev.
