It is an list implementation that has much better performance with very
big lists, available as an extension to CPython, and soon included in
pypy by me.
This cheeseshop entry is a good place to start:

The thread might be about integrading it into CPython or something,
haven't read.

It is based on btree, but the implementation I'm working on is based on
the python prototype included in the tar distrib, which won't  probably
be useful if you specifically need a btree. In the future, maybe some
refactoring would be useful, but for now I'm happy with the way I started.

I'd still be interested in ways to test the different list
implementations =)
