Question 1 - What version of VFP will dbf work with? Is VFP9 OK?
Question 2 - You statement of compatibility is unclear.
Works with PyPy, OK.
Hopefully works with other implementations, Hm, what does this mean?
Works or hopefully works with CPython -- which is it?

I guess that Ethan means that his library definitely works with PyPy and
CPython, because he has tested it on those, and that he expects that it
will work with Stackless, Jython, IronPython, and any other compliant
Python interpreter, but hasn't tested on them.

I agree that the sentence is unclear, but my reading of it is that it
works on CPython.
