PyPy made a release last week.  
release 1.0 (coming next month) may be of even more interest to you.  Remember
that this is bleeding edge computer science research, not something
we suggest you use in production right away.

in particular greenlets http://codespeak.net/py/dist/greenlet.html may
be of interest to you.   We don't have an 'edit and continue' interface
to pypy yet, but that is exactly what we are doing internally, so by
my reckoning, at any rate, it would not be hard to add.

EU project winds up in March.  No cool new ideas are going to go in
until April, because we are going to have the damndest time getting all
we promised done on time ...

PyPy has its own mailing list http://codespeak.net/mailman/listinfo/pypy-dev
and pypy developers hang out on the irc channel #pypy on freenode.  That
is a better place to discuss pypy than here.
