[Python-Dev] 2.4 news reaches interesting places

I was pleasantly surprised to find a pointer to this article in a news
digest that the ACM emails me regularly (ACM TechNews).


One thing that bugs me: the article says 3 or 4 times that Python is
slow, each time with a refutation ("but it's so flexible", "but it's
fast enough") but still, they sure seem to harp on the point. This is
a PR issue that Python needs to fight -- any ideas?
