Has anyone looked at GraalVM?

Oracle’s GraalVM seems to be a new “polyglot JVM” (whatever that may mean) and claims to run Python. Has anyone looked into this more?


Well never mind.

~/Downloads/graalvm-ce-19.1.0/Contents/Home$ bin/graalpython 
Python 3.7.3 (Thu Jun 27 00:39:59 PDT 2019)
[GraalVM CE, Java 1.8.0_212] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
Please note: This Python implementation is in the very early stages, and can run little more than basic benchmarks at this point.

I’ve never played with it myself, and don’t know the exact status. But what I do know is that Oracle is throwing tons of resources at Graal, and I know that they’ve measured how fast numpy runs on graalpython. So I’m pretty sure that startup message isn’t telling the whole story.
