I'm familiar with Brett's work, but it's a mid-term solution, not a
short-term one. Ben Laurie did this for Perl with CAPerl (he actually
looked at Python first, but was told by the community that there's no
interest in the work, apparently), and I'm satisfied by his results, so
there's good reason to believe that we'll be able to take and use
Brett's work when it's ready.
