I'm ready to bet that they did not implement a Python compiler, but a 
simil-Python language that implements 80/90/95% of Python features.  The web 
is full of projects like this.

I'm not saying that the techniques used for that project are not worth of 
attention, just that probably "the trick" was not to support the features of 
Python that are hardest to implement efficiently.
