I skimmed over the website and read the whitepaper few weeks ago. Honestly, I
don't understand if and how they manage to speedup python. In fact, they show
results for only 4 benchmarks: one is a version of bpnn (which we also have,
somewhere) modified to be "static enough" to be compiled by shedskin; the
other three are really microbenchmarks.
Since he doesn't show any other benchmark, I wonder if his product gives any
speedup at all on real programs.
In other words: I think we should also point out the few benchmarks where pypy
is already faster and start making money on it :-)
