Guido has decreed that namedtuple shall be reimplemented with speed in mind.

I haven't timed it (I'm hoping somebody will volunteer to be the bench mark guru), I'll offer my NamedTuple 
implementation from my aenum [1] library.  It uses the same metaclass techniques as Enum, and offers doc string and 
default value support in the class-based form.
