No-one's ignoring that. Philip already mentioned Numba, for example. The
only question is whether this needs to happen outside of the existing
ecosystem, or if we can't just embrace the 95-to-5 rule and use the right
tools just for the performance critical bits of our code, without
sacrificing what we achieved in the last 20 years.
