[pypy-dev] Advice for a talk...

I don't know if it's a good idea to continue saying that our JIT is
"Psyco-style". Mostly it's not :-) It's a tracing JIT now.
"The prototype JIT compiler ran programs X times faster than CPython"...
Assuming you are now talking about the new JIT compiler, I suppose that
such impressive numbers could still be true, but more importantly it now
starts to actually run larger benchmarks with "a good speed-up". I
would say that it's around the speed of Psyco, even a bit better in
general, except that producing the assembler from the PyPy JIT still
takes far too much time for now.
Other random notes:
* I would kill "logic programming".
* As Maciej pointed out, having "high performance GC" was moved to the
background for now as our existing GCs, although admittedly simple,
perform well enough.
