[pypy-dev] Newbie question: using PyPy to compile the source of a single function?

I’m looking for some way of programmatically using PyPy to compile a snippet of python source code (probably a function def) into an optimized binary, which I can call to pass data back and forth. The end goal is to have something like this



def expensive_function(arg):

    ... expensive computation ...

    return result


using macros (https://github.com/lihaoyi/macropy) to perform this conversion at import time.


I have no idea if this is possible or not; could anyone here give me any pointers or advice how to do this/why it is impossible?
