Hi Brett.

*If* you're talking about benchmarks, would be cool if you mention
that pypy is actually much faster on most of them.

I will definitely mention that PyPy is actively working on Python 3 support and people should help out where they can (whether it be technical or financial) since PyPy will be faster than CPython in this regard and if you needed a good chance to switch interpreters this would be it.

BTW, now that 3.3 is out is Antonio going to aim for 3.3 compatibility for the initial release or stay back on 3.2?
Also a very sad
fact is that a lot of actually interesting benchmarks don't work on
py3k (although a growing number). Twisted and sympy are very
informative for example

As soon as those projects are ported we can obviously add those benchmarks.
