depends on your processor speed...on a recent machine (~2.3GHz)
I can get about 2k nps without the psyco boost...but my goal was not
to beat the compiled programs with fast code.  I'd like to develop a
strong program with good evaluation and move ordering.  And perhaps
try search methods other than alphabeta.  Using bitboards should
make the first part easier and using python should help with the
second
part.
