I find bringing running time down from more than 1/2 hour to about 10 minutes with two lines of new code to be quite remarkable. This speedup is still probably less than the speed of a similar application in C, and it is certainly less than the 100x speedup that a few isolated Psyco test cases exhibit. But this application is fairly "real life" and the improvements are enough to be significant in many contexts.
A short intro to Psyco, the Python specializing compiler.
