Why is [slow]spitfire slower with PyPy? Is it regex-related? I
remember when, because of this, spambayes was slower (including
release 1.3, now solved). But for spitfire, 1.3 was faster than 1.4
and the head (for slowspitfire it's the opposite).

For the rest, I see no significant case of slowdown of PyPy over time.
