Dude, it's called CPython for a reason.

IMHO CPython means Core Python, not C Python.

It is, as I recall, a term for the reference implementation of Python,
which was written in C... In contrast to things like Jython -- Python
implemented using Java.

Yes, it is a reference. That's why it is called "Core Python". The "C"
has nothing to do with the C programming language. It may well be
written in any language. So far it is "C" language.
