Hardly. Maybe not the most sought after metric but definitely up there
in a list of things to look at. Given n interpreted languages and
faced with the problem of making a decision, speed is definitely a
consideration (although other things are there as well).

The number of Python projects going just targeting speed increase and
the shift from 3.0 to 3.1 with the faster IO module are testaments to

I've just recovered from the PHP/Python 'discussion' so I'll stay out
of this one. :)
