I didn't understand how psyco could use somes PyPy's ideas, i thought 
it's only the opposite... So i was going to read the PyPy's 
documentation : it's fascinating !!!

But how to test it ? The doc says : "When PyPy is translated into an 
executable like pypy-c, the executable contains a full virtual machine 
that can optionally include a Just-In-Time compiler."

Where is this 'option', is there somethings to activate it ?
