That's true, we had bad experience with the Jython project a few years 
ago. It depends on the students though; I think we had better experience 
with a project to move Zope 2 forward to a newer version of Python 2.x 
(if I recall that correctly).

But writing new code is a lot more fun. But if you're going to do 
porting, PyPy is a lot more tempting as a target for me.
