The phase of the program I discussed was in the initialization, where there 
are no real reasons to choose Python over C.

I have written and still use my own native exe compiler for my own PLD2 
language (another l-o-ng talk?).  Suffice it to say, learning curve for a 
compiled program is not a problem.  Memory is not an issue since PLD2 
memory is laid out statically.

I could do C and have done some modest coding with it.  It is impossible to 
program for Windows without being able to constantly read C.  I am not fond 
of the typing.  Over 95% of types are 32 bit integers.  More than once, the 
correct response to a type error is to cast the type (i.e. ignore).

I could use typing in ctypes but I didn't so I don't have to deal with typing.
