That depends what sort of n00b question.

If they are specifically related to the internals of the CPython 
interpreter, then this is certainly the right place. Code generation 
will count as an internal function of the interpreter.

If they're general questions about Python the language, then the 
python-list mailing list is better. (Also available as comp.lang.python 
on Usenet.) Beware: it tends to be a high-volume, easily distracted 
forum where people often go off on long discussions which are only 
peripherally related to Python.
