I don't think this guy is making native code compilers.  The
"compiled" TkDiff demo is still implemented using Tcl.  Unlike my
grandfather, I can't read German so I can't figure out what his
"compiler" is supposed to do from the "whitepaper".  Babelfish
does not seem to help.

Making Python more efficient is not an easy task.  If you are
looking for an easy solution you are out of luck.  It is probably
more useful to put effort into something like into Gwydion Dylan.
