[Cython] Yet another Python to C compiler

Recently I've found one more Python to C compiler, that translates
python bytecode into C source.
And author says about 100% Python compatibility. The project is a
signle 800KB python file.


I was wondering when found that 2c beats Cython in some benchmarks.
For instance, it's about 2 times faster than Cython in pystone test
(pure python mode).

Think we should investigate performance differences and make cython faster.
