Square pegs and round holes

I recently read an article mentioning that Jython had languished because its creator Jim Hugunin had left the project to work on IronPython at Microsoft. He's now left the IronPython project (via) and off to Google, leaving the soon-to-be-classic quote:
making that happen at Microsoft always felt like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole - which can be done but only at major cost to both the peg and the hole

His bullishness about Java is at odds with general sentiment, but it's worth being reminded that places like Google also have an interest in Java (in some form or another).
