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 think that other proyect that with some future is PyPy[1]: Python coded in Python. The basic idea is to try make a Python interpreter in Python, not in C like the original CPython. So you can work in a higer level lenguaje and try to make athomatic translator of Python into other languajes like C, LISP and the LLVM opcodes. Also the project will introduce some ideas developed in other projects like Stackless Python and Psyco (a Python JIT with some profiling)
