I think you should get other developers to look at this project too. Your

I think that adding these functions is a pretty low priority. Making
installers for Mac and Linux is a lot more important. For example, I have a
friend who teaches Python to a class of children in Austria, and he said
that if I'll make it into something that's easily installable on Ubuntu,
he'll try to give it to the kids in his class.
It's less pleasant work, but much more important, assuming our goal is to
make this tool popular and get more people learning Python.
If you'd want me to merge your additions (`speed` etc.) to my repo, you'll
have to keep it all documented, make sure it works on all platforms, and
regenerate the Windows installer from the script. If you'll do these, I'll
probably put it on the official site.

Oh! Now it worked.
