I agree that this could be done, linking the runtime for dynamic
behaviour. 
but the performance hit would still be in the method lookup phase, as
projects like python-to-c converter pointed out. 
You need to do some clever type inference and runtime optimization,
and that won't be so easy. 
Look out for starkiller (python compiler+type inference) for a
discussion on this.
