Re-opening.  I don't agree that we should close a performance bug report as
"won't fix" for some internal reason like "nobody wants to rewrite _csv to
RPython".  That's against the point of asking people to report performance issues.

I think it's better to keep such issues as opened, even if they stay around
opened for a long time.  (For all I know, maybe it will stay around for long
enough that eventually the pure Python version gets JITted so well that
rewriting to RPython doesn't make sense any more.  *Then* we can close it.)

status: wontfix -> chatting
