No, performance isn't a BIG issue for my program - and so far I love Python.
I'm just learning it and trying to stay away from "performance pitfalls".
It's not that I'm trying to squeeze every bit of speed out of Python, just
trying to get the best performance out of my program.

Two things I've learned from this thread:

1. Differences in code don't make THAT much difference in performance
(except in a few of the cases mentioned).

2. There are many different ways to do something (ala Perl) - which has
drawbacks and advantages.

Thanks, everyone!
