Take a look at http://python.org/sf/606098
This patch speeds up dictionary lookup by name enough to make schemes
like PEPs 266, 267 and 280 quite unnecessary. I know Guido likes the
idea but the implementation is still far from complete. It does
demonstrate the concepts and attainable performance. Unfortunately, I
don't have time for this. if you or anyone else want to work on it
I'll be glad to help.
