How about 




    cipy -- C in Python or C inline Python.

    cip -- ditto.

    sup -- speed up python.

    supuc -- speed up python using c.

    bicep -- blitz inline c embedded in python.





Are there plans to support other languages apart from C/C++ ?  is it
possible to embed others even?
