The front page says a 10x speedup. That's a bit short of the almost 
1000x speedup required for numerical code (that is, for some examples 
Python is thousands of times slower than C or Fortran).

Well -- I'm sure hotpy could get beyond 10x as well -- it's just to say 
that they have probably not looked much on the case of numerical 
computation.

Well, you can start with these...:
