I have tried it and it seemed to work without problems, but I did not 
have a chance to profile it or verify that it was actually optimising 
stuff properly.
I can imagine that it would be great particularly for optimising short 
handlers and the modpython code itself.
It would be worth reporting your findings here if you do get it working 
as I am sure others are interested.


PS For those who don't know psyco, it is definitely worth checking out, 
does very intelligent JIT Python->assembly compilation based on type 
Look at the web page mentioned above for more info
