Google launched custom search engines today. You can customize the search engine in a variety of ways, but the primary control is selecting which sites to include in the search engine. I've been working on a Python search engine that has technical and community sites for Python programmers. If search for socket, the top results is Andrew Kuchling's Socket Programming HOWTO, which is result five on a regular Google search.
Please give it a try. If you find it helpful, you can volunteer to help maintain it.

Armin Rigo and Samuele Pedroni have written a paper for the Dynamic Languages Symposium at OOPSLA this month. I haven't read it yet, but I'm looking forward to a self-contained summary of their work. See PyPy's approach to virtual machine construction.
