[Python-Dev] SF patch 864863: Bisect C implementation

Dmitry Vasiliev has submitted a C implementation for the bisect module.

My thoughts are to accept it with the following changes:

* leave the original code intact for teaching purposes
* import the C version from _bisect 
* make sure the C code is not list specific and will work with any 
  container supporting __len__(), __getitem__(), and insert().  

Do you guys have any objections?
