Hi,

Your writing style is too annoying to answer properly :-(
I will not try to answer all of the points you mention;
instead, let's just point out (as others have done) that
the picture is more complex that you suppose, because it
includes a lot of aspects that you completely ignore.  I
know definitely that with changes to the semantics of the
language, Python could be made seriously faster.  PyPy is
not about this; it's a collection of people who either
don't care too much about performance, or believe that
even with these semantics Python *can* be made seriously
fast -- it's just harder, but not impossible.


A bientot,

Armin.
