The problem with Spy, at this point in time, is that
it doesn't offer any significant advantage over
CPython.  IIRC Spy is quite a bit slower and the
libraries aren't there (which really makes it unusable
for most development).  DrScheme for Python would be
nice and might attract some attention if the library
issue was solved.
