perhaps there is a better forum for asking this question, but i specifically thought ektoric might have some insight about it, or at least good speculation, either way i thought it might be interesting outside pm.
python is an interpreted language- i have nothing against that, and i think there are jit compilers for making python run faster. do you think sugar will ever use one? if it doesn't already.
it seems there are two ways of this happening, i'm not entirely sure both are possible. the ideal and more likely way is that it would become a native feature of sugar: jit python would become the rule. (despite the word "compiler," all code would still be interpreted, you could still change the source as easily as you do now) the other way (if it's possible) would be if someone made a sort of jit "plugin" so that when integrated with sugar, it would perform faster. that'd be cool too- if an extra step at least.
