Yes, this is exactly what I mean.  I look at the relative success of
companies like Pop-Cap Games and Puppy Games, except they use
Flash/Java and Java, respectively.

Puppy Games uses a proprietary form of Java because they are heavily
invested in it, and they have pretty much mastered QA and Distribution
for that particular brand of Java.  So, it makes sense to have a
studio that did the same thing with PyGame, shared libraries, etc.
