A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
Not long ago I had an emacs session go crazy pushing my laptop deep into
swap. I logged in via ssh and killed the emacs free up about 4G and removing the need for the system to be in swap at all.
Running swapoff -a I only achieved about 1MB/s instead of the 15-30MB/s
that the disk should have been able to achieve.
Grumble. All of the fancy algorithms in the world don't help unless we get the fundamentals right.
