Parrot -- was [Dev] psyco on the radar?

I would suggest that any of these sorts
of options should only be considered after the code
has been developed and is working etc, and not create 
any dependancy on these sorts of technologies.

psyco for instance is very much bound to i386 at the moment,
and I think  "but when it is available for Python," is probably 
a bit too optimistic, I don't think they even know how parrot will run
python yet ;-)

See ya
