Thanks to you and David for the psyco info.  I may use it for other projects, 
but it seems that since ipython's interactive response is already 'fast 
enough', it's one thing I don't need to worry too much about for now.

But I continue to follow psyco with the corner of my eye, since for numerical 
projects it may become an interesting option in the future.
