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.

The speed of Bash, etc, is almost never the actual problem. The actual problem is usually that system startup involves lots of disk I/O through a cold cache, which is pretty much the slowest thing you can do on a computer. Even if the script was 10x as fast, it'd still spend 99% of its time sleeping.
