I have a couple of small patches and bugs to review.  Should be no
problem getting these in this weekend.

Am working on a more cache friendly dict lookup strategy.  If it is
not ready for prime time in the next few days, it will have to wait
for Py2.4.

A couple of bytecode optimizations may also have to wait for Py2.4.
For some reason, Basicblock(nop, jump_if_true) is not always directly 
substitutable for Basicblock(unary_not, jump_if_false).  I suspect
the three-way return value for PyObject_IsTrue() but it could be
something else.
