 There are two main constraints for using Jython:
 
 * The latest Python supported version is 2.7
-* It is not straightforward to use Python C extensions
+* It is not straightforward to use Python C extensions, which may prevent reuse of some libraries
+
+(For more information please see <https://wiki.python.org/jython/JythonFaq/GeneralInfo>.)

+One possible alternative for streaming that allows for native Python execution would be the
Apache Beam
 
 Review comment:
   add a link to the Apache Beam project, or maybe even a more specific python-related page.

> The "Python Programming Guide (Streaming) Beta" at [https://ci.apache.org/projects/flink/flink-docs-master/dev/stream/python.html] does
not sufficiently highlight limitations of the API. It should probably have a prominent disclaimer
right at the top stating that this actually isn't a "Python" API but Jython, which likely
means that the user looking for a solution to run native Python code won't be able to use
many important libraries, which is often the reason to look for Python support in first place.
