I restructured my code for performance issues, and now I have a smaller and 
simpler struct, containing two individual strings (STL strings) and a vector 
of strings. 

The individual strings should not be a problem, I assume, and the vector of 
strings is actually a tuple. But the problem is more that I am not so 
proficient in python at all. I think, I will consider your hints in depth and 
come back once I can send you more qualified utterances on this wonderful 
scripting language :-)

Thanks a lot!!
