Um. I may just be adding to the considerable pile of confusion here,
but if this is the same as the 'calling bind() in a loop is really
slow' problem, then, no, python isn't bypassing lookupd (on Jaguar, at
least), as you can tell by watching the output of 'top -u' while
you're doing it.
42. You can measure a programmer's perspective by noting his
attitude on the continuing vitality of FORTRAN.
