psyco: The Python specializing compiler1

Psyco shows that it is possible to execute Python code at speeds approaching that of fully compiled languages, by using a technique called "specialization". This extension module for the unmodified interpreter accelerates user programs with little or no change in their sources. It can increase speed by a factor that can be very interesting, and an increase of 2 to 10 times is common.
