[sorry for cross posting]

This looks *very* interesting. Cython has recently made inroads of featuring 
OpenMP supported parallelisation on SMP/multi-core machines. This gives a 
good/brief introduction on how this can be accomplished, and what can be 
expected. Python now really becomes capable of being a language of choice for 
writing computationally intensive codes for single machines. Together with 
PyMPI or any other simple multi-host distribution technique (ParallelPython, 
multiprocessing, PyRO, ...) it can then also easily scale to clusters, while 
still (mostly) retaining the ease and speed of development we all love Python
