in my pytte1 experiment from last year, I was able to run pystone about 25
times faster than a stock 2.1 interpreter.
(that would be, say, about 20 times faster than 2.3)
key features contributing to this is true gc, call-site caching, and "traditional"
(C-style) argument passing for common cases.
not sure if any of that can be applied any of that to today's C python, though
(but that doesn't mean it cannot be done ;-).

that would be most excellent.
