Can't Psyco be improved, so it can compile things like:

nums = (i for i in xrange(200000) if i % 2)
print sum(nums)

I think the current Psyco runs slower than Python with generators/
iterators. To speed up that code with Psyco you have to write this:

nums = [i for i in xrange(200000) if i % 2]
print sum(nums)
