Could be. I tried Psyco on it, but it doesn't do better than 2x the plain
Python speed. This is because this module does unsigned 32-bit arithmetic
using longs. Well I could enhance Psyco to try and encode longs in a single
unsigned 32-bit machine word if they fit... The result would certainly be
But anyway I guess that's not what you had in mind; we could try to
genpyrex-ify the module. Would probably need some tweaking in the Python
source, but could be interesting to try indeed.
