not yet and not for quite some time, i guess.

This is possible although it will not be very fast (unless PyPy can 
already translate your functions to C, possibly even with type 
inference in which case it might run at C-speed).

Running a module or some function through PyPy (on top of 
a CPython version) is rather easy.  The work starts at the
need to implement the history funcionality.  This is likely 
doable during (part of) a sprint, especially since we already
have the TraceObjectSpace which does something similar. 

However, it would be interesting if we discuss a higher level 
API that you would like to have in order to integrate it into Gato.
