Assembly for Python

At the Dynamic Languages Symposium, the current talk is about exposing the CPU to Python programs in a way consistent with Python. Interestingly, they exposed all instructions of the CPU to Python.

While on one hand this gives great power, it also opens the door to bugs that are rather difficult to track down. I wonder if the risks outweigh the benefits... ???...

If you believe in turtles all the way down, then yes, it is a good thing.
