Thank you!

It's great to have porting docs!  Thanks.  That could help us either
convince upstreams to port their code or to help them port their code over.

One slight problem we've run into is that we can't currently get
python-peak-rules running on python-2.7 due to incompatibility between the
current version of python-byte-assembler (which is a peak-rules dependency)
and python-2.7.  The JUMP_IF_FALSE and FUMP_IF_TRUE opcodes have been
removed in python-2.7.
