Python for the iPhone?

P: n/a
Anybody tried this port of Python to the iPhone?

Hasn't been updated since July 2007. Maybe just a proof-of-concept? I'm
guessing it involves jailbreaking the phone.

There's a very brief summary of iPhone drawbacks with respect to
openness in this very interesting presentation from PyCon UK:

Although it probably doesn't tell you anything you didn't already know
about Apple's disdain for people running "unauthorised" software on
the iPhone, I think the Python involvement in Openmoko is very
interesting and deserving of wider attention, especially amongst those
considering getting a mobile device for its Python capabilities.
