Within Google - I'm guessing that you and another prominent commenter on LWN work there given the numerous "nod and wink" references to various projects - there have apparently been a number of projects to improve Python performance and/or predictability, some being very widely known and others only barely surfacing on the radar of the most central Python core developers (many of whom also seem to be at Google), so I'd be interested to hear what you've looked at.
