I really hate this step. Why cannot python be faster?
I choose python because it is easier to program with.
Now if I want to write a good program, I have
to use 2 languages which is not easier anymore.

Interpreter can be made to run fast. Why python cannot? 
Asking people to optimize with C is just an lame excuse. 

Of couse, python is free (as beer and freedem), so 
it is natural there are no people want to work on
a faster python at this moment. Still the C excuse sucks.
