Hi all,

I am an open source contributor of Pyston, and working on NumPy Pyston
support(Pyston: https://github.com/dropbox/pyston)

I disabled some tests which cause segfaults. This is current situation(in
my local branch):

----------------------------------
Ran 3240 tests in 80.811s

FAILED (KNOWNFAIL=3, SKIP=6, errors=334, failures=74)
----------------------------------

Indeed, the time consuming was longer than CPython. I think this is because
of the additional exceptions / frame introspection etc... And no one took
yet a look at the perf.

Pyston runtime miss some features. I will try to fix the problems which
discovered in running NumPy test suite.

This is basically an announcement. I will update the situation when I get
breakthrough, ask for help if I encounter problems, submit commit to NumPy
if needed.

Looking for feedback.

Regards,
Sun
