Depends on what and how much code you use. If you compile everything into one big module that "imports" all of the stdlib when it gets loaded, you'd likely loose a lot of time because it would take a while to initialise all that useless code on startup. If you keep it separate, it would likely be a lot faster because you avoid the interpreter for most of the module startup.
How much of an
effect would it have on startup times and these benchmarks if
Cython-compiled extensions were used?
I was specifically thinking in terms of the tests Brett ran (that was the full set on speed.python.org
, wasn't it?),
It's not the full set as not all of them can be run on Python 3, but it is as many as can be run.
