That should be nice ;) Greate step forward for cython and python.
Btw I think that stdlib module cython optimization should be as simple
as writting .pxd file with minimal .py or none modifications
As in difflib
Also it would be good to have:
- performance comparison/monitoring infrastructure
- more tests on stdlib
