The performance isn't as good as I'd like, especially on 64-bits. I
suspect the difference from the py3k branch is that trunk doesn't have
Antoine's dispatch patch, and POP_TOP is predicted after
JUMP_IF_{TRUE,FALSE}, which means without computed-goto-dispatch, this
patch usually only saves a predictable if(). The skipped JUMP_ABSOLUTEs
may not happen enough in my benchmarks to matter much.

On the other hand, "./python.exe -m timeit -s 'x=range(500)' '[y+3 for y
in x if y%5 <2]'" shows the following differences on my MacBook

For py3k:
Min: 196.000 -> 172.000: 13.95% faster
Avg: 200.000 -> 178.600: 11.98% faster
Significant (t=5.339997, a=0.95)

For trunk:
Min: 108.000 -> 88.200: 22.45% faster
Avg: 114.571 -> 97.571: 17.42% faster
Significant (t=5.518236, a=0.95)

That list comprehension definitely takes advantage of skipping the
JUMP_ABSOLUTE.
