I am not sure whether i understand this statement right - the
statement is flawed if you had taken either of the development times
or the running times as the basis.
But let me clarify it in my own terms :

'Good' C++ is the fastest above; if you write crappy c++ then the
binary is huge and also the running times are NOT as one would expect
from C++. C++ is a very tricky language, but once learnt, it is sheer

The integration of Python and C/C++ is one of the most beautiful thing
that man has ever created :P One gets to harness the speed(runtime) of
c++ and the fast development time of Python.
