s/PRPython/RSPython/ ? :-)

This is also what I understood. Yet, despite the uni-directionality of RPy, this is what I chose for my personal usage (probably more handy to use, or easy to install -- but the main point was that RPy guaranteed to be more stable and never crash!). I think I recently read somewhere that they were plans for undusting RSPython, and then said to myself: "Should re-evaluate once done.".

Surely that for now, RPy is quite sufficient for my simple needs.
