Pypy can compile a restricted subset of python... 

More accurately it translates the restricted subset to C and then *that* can 
be compiled. Some code can get quite dramatic speed improvements - though 
interpreted pypy itself (or translated) is still *a lot* slower than regular 
C-Python).

Pypy isn't ready (last time I looked) for general consumption yet, and 
certainly not for beginners :)
