In short, if your app isn't fast enough, profile to find the bottleneck. Until then, speculation is mostly futile, and probably wrong. The advantage of python is you can have a working app much much sooner than with e.g. C, which gives you much more time to properly profile for bottlenecks and think of ways to overcome them.
Just as a note - I did and I found and I fixed. I always advocate finding performance issues before fixing perforamnce issues, and I hit people on the head when they get it the wrong way around. Regards Stephen Thorne.
