A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
This sounds like a great opportunity for someone to install a backdoor. All I have to do is fix up a
squillion lines of code (plus a little something extra for my time) and send it in with my hotmail

Hmmm, unless the backdoor is only active if you enable a non-default setting. It would be quite nasty to only enable it when the "Fast routing" or "Netfilter NAT" option are enabled. This way it's hard to spot and will be enabled on most firewalls.
So this should be tested with allyesconfig or something similar...
