I won't argue here with the exclusion of PyPy, but RPython is definitely 
compiler technology that runs on CPython 2.6/2.7. For now, it is only 
accessible from a source checkout of PyPy but that will soon change and 
"pip install rpython" isn't far off.

Since it's a whole tool chain, it has a wealth of functionalities, 
though they aren't always well-documented or easy to access from the 
outside: bytecode analysis, type inference, several GC implementations, 
a JIT generator, assemblers for several architectures, ...

Cheers,
Ronan
