Yes, type 'py2c' into google... You will have a C code but this will be
as fast as trough the python interpreter.
In fact, nothing real with compiler can be done until type inference in
Python is fully implemented.
For type inference look at StarKiller
(http://www.python.org/pycon/dc2004/papers/1/), a promising type
inference for Python. I think the author is also working on a c++
translator but no code is released.
If you just want an exe file, also see py2exe
If what you want is something faster than python but not an ELF file
then also look at pyrex.
