This is the CPython VM. Other implementations do what they do. Perhaps
similar, but certainly different in details.
There have been various requests over the years on
Python-list/comp.lang.python for documents describing the C-VM. The
usual answer has been 'read the source' as you did. So I encourage you
to announce it there and perhaps consider adding a PyWiki page (I assume
there is not one now).
