My Linux installation is not quite as old as my machine but its still
ancient. My perl is version 5.003_07 -- sorry for picking on your Perl

Interesting that `map' changes so much between Perl versions.

Hint: starting python with option `-S' shaves off another 20 percent
of real time (for test2.py on my machine).

I hope you'll enjoy Python.
