comment Does boostrapping limit the achievable speed of the new compiler?
The question was more on a computational theory level. But bullet point 1) would be a good fit to be considered in delnan’s answer.

That kind of missed my questions. I changed the OP a bit to make them obvious. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

That was enlightning. I fixed my OP up a bit to outline the questions, but based on this answer I’d assume Q1:no, Q2:Yes.

comment Python decorators and Lisp macros
Maybe someone can hack up some comparable Clojure higher-order function to the Python example above. I tried but criss-crossed my mind in the process. Since the Python example uses object attributes this has to be a bit different.

But if the IP of python.org was blocked it would make no sense to link from it do a separate download page, would it?

Isn’t this a bit far-fetched? :)
