Just in case someone is interested I published my experience with running Wt 
with Jython. This is a little bit less off topic than it seems because it all 
started as an experiment to see if it was possible to port Koo (our PyQt 
application) to the web. I will explain in later posts what were my findings 
trying to create a wrapper for PyQt classes which would have allowed running 
PyQt applications on the web without modifying the original PyQt application.

The conclusion is that even if it is probably possible I didn't want to go 
that way because it required lots of hacks and probably performance would not 
be good enough either. Even if that's not the way to go, others may be 
interested in the possibility of maintaining two applications with very 
similar codebase one for the web and another for the desktop. Other approaches 
end up using the web-enabled application for the desktop, which is not ideal 

Anyway, here's the info:
