[LLVMdev] Another LLVM JIT extension to Python

Dear LLVM,

I am a young developer who have just uploaded my first opensource 
project based on LLVM. I would like to know what professionals think of 
my project.

I have started a JIT extension to Python called Pymothoa ( 
http://code.google.com/p/pymothoa/). Unlike other similar projects, I 
did not modify the interpreter. Pymothoa uses Python decorators to mark 
function for JIT compiling. It uses the AST generated by Python; 
thereby, it uses the same syntax of Python but works like a low-level 
programming language (like C). The goal is to get speedup in 
compute-intensive code without writing C-extensions.

If you are interested, there are two demo applications in the source 
tree: matrix-matrix multiplication and reduce-sum. I would appreciate 
any comment.
