  The jit-generator branch was merged a few days ago, fixing a weakness
  with code that uses generators. And now PyPy is clearly the fastest
  Python implementation for this code, with both the most wins and the
  lowest overall time. Psyco is still pretty close. Both are a bit more
  than twice as fast as CPython.


Programmers are optimistic.  And we have to be because if we weren't
optimists we couldn't do this work.  Which is why we fall prey to things
like second systems, why we can't schedule our projects,
why this stuff is so hard.  -- Douglas Crockford
