Shed Skin 0.9.2

I have just released version 0.9.2 of Shed Skin, a restricted-Python (2.4-2.6) to C++ compiler. This is the second maintenance release since 0.9, so no new major features were added.

The biggest improvement is probably some optimizations for the array module. Other than this, the changes are mostly unrelated minor optimizations and bug fixes. Please see the release notes for more detail.

Three nice new examples were also added for this release, bringing the number of examples to 67, with a total linecount of about 17,000 lines (sloccount): a "stereo vision" program, and two Rubik's cube solvers.
