| For what it is worth to people, I have taken the liberty of benchmarking 
| the new Java SDK ( 1.4.0 ) against Python 2.1 and 2.2. The tests originate 
| from:

|
| Point form Summary:
...
| Interesting differences between Python 2.1 and 2.2:
|
| - I/O is slower in 2.2
| - List and Hash are slightly improved in 2.2
| - Object allocation shows slight improvement
| - Interpreter intialization time has doubled in 2.2

Doubled!!?  Could that be some kind of site glitch?
