Implementation of Conway's Game of Life

'bitlife' implements Conway's Game of Life using boolean logic operations (and, or, not, xor). It does so by blits, thus running a Life game in every bitplane in parallel. Two implementations are available: a proof-of-concept one in Python and a useful one in C.
