One small correction:

Rerunning Cog and CPython too with 5000000 loops didn't change the 
numbers much, but for Shedskin it turns out more proper:

gokr at quigon:~/python/shedskin-examples-0.7$ ./pystone
This machine benchmarks at 3546099.290780 pystones/second

50000 loops was just too small. So in fact it is about 4.4x faster than 
Cog. And yes, the ported pystone for shedskin had the loops hard coded. :)
