PyPy faster than Fortran in a tight number-crunching loop? Sorry I find 
this very hard to believe. I could accept that PyPy can match the speed 
of Fortran in these cases, but exceeding seems highly unlikely. Was it a 
mistake, or do you have a reference that shows how PyPy can be faster 
than Fortran?

I agree with the rest what you have said.
