+Psyco works on almost any version of Python (currently 2.1 to
+2.5). At present it *requires* a *32-bit* *PC* (i.e. a
+386-compatible processor), but it is OS-independant.
+This program is still and will always be incomplete, but it
+has been stable for a long time and can give good results.
+There are no plans to port Psyco to 64-bit architectures.
+This would be rather involved. Psyco is only being
+maintained, not further developed. The development efforts of
+the author are now focused on PyPy, which will include
+Psyco-like techniques. (http://codespeak.net/pypy)
+Note that Psyco works better with Python versions starting
+from 2.2.2, and support for older versions may be dropped in
+the future as they become really out-of-date.
