I took Larry's PR and did a fair amount of cleanup on it to make the build less
painful and fragile.  My branch is fairly easy to re-build.  The major downsides remaining
are that you couldn't update .py files and have them used (static ones
take priority) and the generated C code is quite large.

I didn't make any attempt to work on the serializer, other than to make it work
with an alpha version of Python 3.10.

It was good enough to pass nearly(?) all tests and I did some profiling.  It helped reduce startup time quite a bit.
