It's actually not hard to extend the set of optimisations in Cython, and
it's plain object oriented programming against the parse tree. Basically
just finding a code pattern and transforming it into something that does
the same thing, but faster.

It's also a lot of fun, and it certainly feels good to know that your tiny
tweak just made tons of other programs a bit faster.
