Here is something else to ponder...

>>> timeit.Timer("min.__hash__()").timeit(100000000)
10.986408948898315

>>> timeit.Timer("'min'.__hash__()").timeit(100000000)
9.713651180267334

>>> timeit.Timer("hash(min)").timeit(100000000)
8.8025760650634766

>>> timeit.Timer("hash('min')").timeit(100000000)
5.7652111053466797

Not sure at all what that means :-).  BTW, all these tests are on
Python 2.6.5 on Ubuntu 10.04.
