I'm not sure a one time hit of 17 ms is worth fighting for ;) The problems
were that both the `string` and `dis` modules were used without importing
them. Evidently those code paths were never traversed, so I removed the
code using `dis` and raised an error there instead, it was for parsing
tuple arguments. The string.join was fixed using the string method.
