Too bad it is so hard to make a living outside of Java development
around here -- but lately the language choices on the JVM have been
improving dramatically.  JRuby and to a lesser extent Groovy and Scala
have the spotlight now, but Jython is going to be in there as well now
that we have a new release out.

These are the reasons I got involved with Jython development a few
years back.  Jython 2.1 felt so limited compared to the then current
Python 2.3.  Now that new style classes are in Jython I think really
catching up is within reasonable reach.  We're are most likely to
target 2.5 with the next release.
