RH7 huh?  Well, that's not a good sign.  I don't know anything about
the speed comparison other than python 2 isn't ridiculously slow.  But
RH decided to ship an unstable compiler with their distro so you can
have extra fun building things.  

To build python 2.0 on my RH7 system (on a Intel PII) I had to first
hand-fix /usr/include/bits/xopen_lim.h to set the LONG_BIT and
WORD_BIT macros properly.
