I realize the highest priority for now is probably support for MD+.
But when I first discovered the Python support in MD, I was disappointed it was Python 2 (via jython) because I didn't learn Python until 3.0 came out, and now Python 2 is no longer supported. And it seems that jython isn't particularly actively supported either, and the support for Python 3 features in jython has been languishing for years.
And then I discovered GraalVM ( https://www.graalvm.org/ ). While I haven't used it at all, it claims to run Java faster than the JVM, and has Python 3.8 support that it claims is faster than CPython 3.8 and faster than jython.
"On average, Python in GraalVM is 8.92x faster than CPython and 8.34x faster than Jython"
But I thought it sounded like a possible way forward to support Python 3, and the performance claims could be interesting as well. While MD seems quite responsive in my usage, faster is generally better.
