There is a possibility to implement this, but none of core developers
is willing to spend time on this. However, you might be interested
that on top of pypy-c with JIT (compiled interpreter, but pypy one and
not CPython), it's over 5x faster than CPython. This is maybe not
150x, but something anyway.
