Can you show the code somehow?

I'm sorry, but we can't just take your code and put it on  
mapproxy.org, there are too many open questions: Wich version of  
MapProxy did you use for your port? How do you guarantee that the Java  
version includes all new features? Who checks that both versions are  
compatible? Who fixes bug in the Java version. Etc.

Maintaining an Open Source project is much more that just writing (or  
porting) some code.
