Imagine a future where you are building that rich, client-side web app. You start by creating some backend services in Flask or Node, an HTML page, throw in a few divs and uls, and then you type <script src="main.py" language="Python">. That future might just be possible, for the right types of applications, with Ryan Kelly's pypy.js project.
