   Currently there are no "best" implementations. Vyper promised to be one,
but it stale now :(

   It is slow. There are thoughts that using Jython and compiling byte code
to native code may give performance boost. My be we (at my job) will try to
experiment with the approach.

   Current CPython implementation stores bytecode files (*.py[co]) along
with the *.py files. This does not allow to use *.py[co] files with
different versions of python. That's why. for exmple, shared
/usr/local/lib/site-python is mostly meaningles; one needs to use
/usr/local/lib/python$VERSION/site-packges.

           Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
