 PyPy's bytearray type is very inefficient. It would be an interesting
 task to look into possible optimizations on this.
+Implement copy-on-write list slicing
+The idea is to have a special implementation of list objects which is used
+when doing ``myslice = mylist[a:b]``: the new list is not constructed
+immediately, but only when (and if) ``myslice`` or ``mylist`` are mutated.
