The sad thing is that because of people going round and pointing the finger at numerous projects claiming that they're "useless", progress on some of the more promising ones has been very slow. I'm not convinced that whole-program analysis will give the best bang for the buck with Python, but given that the author of Shed Skin is, as far as I'm aware, the only guy really doing anything in this area in Python and in public, calling it "useless" is just a continuation of the trend of narrow-mindedness that pushes everything but the current "favourite" to the margins, leading the developers of these marginalised projects to make pessimistic multi-year estimates about when their projects will supposedly be "useful" enough for the finger-pointers.
