> 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?

Only that I wished you had done the same for heapq.py.
