The Google Web Toolkit looks cool. Now we know how they do it.
A couple of weeks ago I was thinking about a similar (at a very high level) approach in Python. But now that we have something to imitate, anyone interested in trying to build a more specific Python equivalent? Portions of the GWT are open source and nothing in the license prohibits reverse engineering as far as I can tell.
I'll set up a mailing list for interested people.
UPDATE: Mailing list available at http://pyworks.org/mailman/listinfo/py-gwt
UPDATE (2006-05-23): Now see Primitive Python Version of GWT Working
