Rough planning between Mallorca and PyCon

Preparation for PyCon

- sprint announcement (soon, i.e. by Friday 3rd Feb)
- updated tutorial
- talks


- more JIT work :)

GC integration

- continue Michael and Carl's genc-vs-gc refactoring
- use and improve GCs written with the framework


- finish high-level interfaces for greenlets and tasklets (nearly done?)
- open: performance with GIL threading: 
  this seems to have improved quite a bit: using our battery of microbenchmarks we
  now get for a version with GIL threads enabled vs. without::

        python2.4 ../goal/pypy-c-23188 ../goal/pypy-c-23188-th
        exe: ../goal/pypy-c-23188
        exe: ../goal/pypy-c-23188-th
        1.26x slower on test_dispatch.test_dispatch_nop()
- still to do: release GIL around sys calls
- open: free threading
- open: tasklet pickling

Compiling double use (PyPy+CPython) extensions

- annotation and compilation of such double use extension modules
- rctypes
