You can also see some views on this nicely described 
"winding-down" in my finalized picture set found here: 

Moreover, yesterday Samuele managed to fix one remaining problem 
(see https://codespeak.net/issue/pypy-dev/issue106) that
was preventing us from executing "import code ; code.interact()" 
with the translated PyPy: a self-contained interactive prompt!  
Of course, we are still missing lots of builtin modules. 
And of course, it's slow because lots of stuff is running
at applevel and we are not tackling optimizations yet. 

So at least on linux platforms you may have success checking
out the latest dist, going to pypy/translator/goal and executing
'sh runtranslate.sh'. This should after around 30 minutes result
in a PyPy extension module (it's not using any CPython stuff, 
it's just still an extension module for historic integration reasons)
and 'app_example.py' should get executed.  This should result 
in the mentioned interactive prompt.  

You can also go to the extension module found in the 
latest /tmp/usession-NUM directory, and execute: 

    import testing_1 

or specify some other file containing a small test program. 

cheers & have fun,
