thanks a lot. I tried it out. Inside the git repo:

$> source /somepath/venv/bin/activate
$(venv)> python ./benchmark.py
Creating tree at ./benchtree: depth=4, num_dirs=5, num_files=50
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "./benchmark.py", line 121, in <module>
   File "./benchmark.py", line 116, in main
   File "./benchmark.py", line 26, in create_tree
     f.write(line * 20000)
TypeError: 'str' does not support the buffer interface
$(venv)> python -V
Python 3.3.0
$(venv)> python

Some better way to test it :?)

All the best,
