no more than when CPython is ported to yet another platform.

(my company supports CPython 1.4, 1.5, 1.5.2, 2.0, 2.1, 2.2 on six
Windows variants, as many Unix variants, and a couple of other plat-
forms.  We also support several Jython/JPython versions on a number
of different Java runtimes.  It's not trivial, but it's much easier than it
was to write a a non-trivial C++ program that worked with both Micro-
soft's and DEC's compilers back in 1997, when I abandoned C++ ;-)
