Hi Samuele,

you are not online, therefore using email.

pedronis: stakkars_: btw my new hook allows to get back to a given 
module or function, or to skip things we know specialize fine

I like the idea. Can't we go even a bit further?
If we teach the specializer to not crash if something
does not work out, but to add the problem blocks to a list,
then we could have one report with all pending problems
and work through this in a more general way.
We also would get an estimate how much has still to be done.

The process we are doing by hand (walking PDB stack, looking
at the block etc.) can be either automated or deferred.
Yes, deferring would be the easiest:
The list of problem blocks should be pickleable for later
analysis. The pickling might not be strong enough to
re-run stuff at the moment, but for the debugging, it would
surely be sufficient.

cheers - chris
