    You're probably right.  I will try to compile psyco on another
    32-bit Linux box I have.

    When properly designed, scripts using Psyco are so much faster
    than the original code that I doubt native 64-bit Python can
    defeat it in terms of speed.  A fair benchmark though could
    only be carried out if I had a 64-bit version of Psyco.  I
    guess I 'll have to wait for one.

    Thanks for your reply.
