It probably wouldn't be "massive", but it would make Plone a more viable 
choice in a lot of situations. I'd *love* to see this!

However, I am not aware that Jython is (yet?) production-ready and 
useful enough to make this an achievable short/mid term goals. Are we 
seeing other frameworks that work properly on Jython? Are people using 
it in production? Those are not rhethorical questions, I'm curious. :)
