I was testing out RPython by following Christopher Armstrong's tutorial "How to do Something in RPython" (http://radix.twistedmatrix.com/2006/12/how-to-do-something-with-rpython-part-1.html). Have things changed?

Thanks for the hint. I'll ask future questions in the Logilab mailing list. The main reason I asked here is that I believe pylint has the --rpython-mode. I saw the following in one of the pypy mailing list archives.

"it is faster and therefore provides feedback faster than  ``translate.py``
+* it does not stop at the first problem it finds, so you can get more
+  feedback on the code in one run"
