Gotta love the name! Looks very interesting, perhaps SciPy could help
with this baby while the author finishes his Ph.D. Nice loose MIT
"The actual performance gains can be very large. For common code,
expect at least a 2x speed-up, more typically 4x. But where Psyco
shines is when running algorithmical code --- these are the first
pieces of code that you would consider rewriting in C for performance.
If you are in this situation, consider using Psyco instead! You might
get 10x to 100x speed-ups. It is theoretically possible to actually
speed up this kind of code up to the performance of C itself."
