CorePy: Assembly Programming in Python

I've got to know about BSD-licensed v 1.0 release of CorePy - "a Python package for developing assembly-level applications on x86, Cell BE and PowerPC processors".

I guess it would be useful for those objective or non-linear functions that are required to be evaluated sufficiently faster than pure Python-coded.

Of course, using C, C++, Fortran code via Cython, f2py, ctypes, SWIG, Pyrex etc could yield some speedup as well.
