[pypy-dev] __builtin__ module

Hello all. Due to the fact that there's no way
in hell for me to get out of the US by March,
and due to the fact that I love this concept,
I've hacked up some basic replacements for
various functions in __builtin__. The code 
resides at http://fenton.baltimore.md.us/pypy.py
Take a look at it and tell me what you think.

Currenty, this code implements everything BUT:

* the exceptions (seperate concept)
* builtin types (not sure how to handle them)
* callable (not sure how to test)
* classmethod (ditto)
* coerce (tritto)
* compile (needs an actual compiler, and the AST module scares me)
* dir (not sure how to get current scope)
* eval (not my job(TM))
* execfile (ditto(TM))
* hex, oct (lazyness, it'll be in version 2)
* id (lower level than I can handle)
* intern (didn't understand the docstring)
* isinstance, issubclass (see classmethod)
* globals, locals (not sure how to get ahold of them)
* raw_input (really complex)
* staticmethod (ugly hackery)
* super (see classmethod)
* type (need more info, dammit!)
* unichr (given chr, unichr frightens me)
* xrange (sorta builtin type)
