digitalmars.D - What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

Just stumbled across this LtU resource, July 2009, and feel that D community might learn something from it (sorry if this is olde news) ... Unladen Swallow: LLVM based Python compiler http://lambda-the-ultimate.org/node/3491 and from there: unladen-swallow: A faster implementation of Python http://code.google.com/p/unladen-swallow/ Now further looking at RelevantPapers that these folks are citing, it looks like they might actually be quite a tuned-in bunch: http://code.google.com/p/unladen-swallow/wiki/RelevantPapers And their project plan makes them look quite serious too. For example, http://code.google.com/p/unladen-swallow/wiki/GarbageCollector I must confess that I've largely ignored Python in the past but there certainly seems to be some interesting reading here and I suspect some reasons for D people to become a little more introspective.
