I don't know much, but from pypy-svn checkin messages
it seems the good place to start is to run:


You can see what options are available by passing -h (for help) to it.

It will try to annotate and translate PyPy, and will also launch Pygame
viewer to navigate some enourmous datastructures it produces.

Lots of changes in annotation directory. builtin.py annotates some
builtin functions' effect. Pygame viewer is at translator/tools/pygame.

In translator directory, main changes were in genc.h (Macro and utility
function definitions) and genc.py.

appspace directory got file object written in Python, using low-level os
module. Also MD5 and SHA module in Python.

No doubt others will do much better job on this than me. :-)
