  Description     : Psyco, a python specializing compiler

 Psyco lets you run your existing Python software much faster, with no 
 change in your source.
 Think of Psyco as a kind of just-in-time (JIT) compiler, a little
 bit like Java's, that emit machine code on the fly instead of
 interpreting your Python program step by step. The result is that
 your unmodified Python programs run faster.
 The plan for the next release is to include a fast low-level
 interpreter that can be used on non-Intel processors. It will
 finally make Psyco portable -- althought of course not as fast as it
 could possibly be if it could emit real machine code. Right now, only
 the i386 architecture is supported. 

Packages for python2.1, 2.2 and 2.3 will be provided.
