Building pypy3 7.3.0 for my FreeBSD server to run Synapse...

@feld well screw it, my server has a Ryzen 3600 I'll just build it myself...

@feld well looks like all of them are done but some packages are still not updated (e.g. pypy3, which is now 7.3.0 in the 2020Q3 branch, but still 6.0.0 in pkg repo, and none of the build servers have actually built it...)

Well trying to keep rendering time in React Native down is definitely a good practice on optimization

It may seem funny I'm using JavaScript when RiotX is a fully native application. But I'm fairly confident my SQLite database will be better than their Realm.

Also my target is to at least perform better than RiotX, i.e. does not get slow and unusable within weeks

I'm now finally fairly confident my plan of a reasonably-featured Matrix client based on React Native can work
