General Development Shed Skin is an experimental Python-to-C++ compiler. It can convert many Python programs into optimized C++ code, without any user intervention such as adding type declarations. Its main purpose is to optimize algorithmic-like Python code, by applying advanced global type inference techniques.

I meant ", too" ;) The tool is nice, and I think it should help moving away from executing e.g. data processing by the slow interpreter (those SuSE config scripts take forever to complete). Anyway, even nonoptimizing converter is good, because g++ will optimize the code if necessary.
