Well if it's this granular then you can do your own scheduling
with a sleep(0) I guess.

Interesting you're saying windows 98 is 26% faster than linux kernel 2.4.18.
This must be due to the differences between python on windows and linux
which must be due to compilers? unless you're doing operating system
specific stuff. Are the sets of data comming from the network perhaps?
