Yup pystoned it on my win2k machine and got a 4 fold increase. - ran a
self made test script based on the "why it is so dramatical" post

and for the list join solution post a nice 3x speed up (the string +=
string2 was about the same unsurprisingly) - what ever Armin is doing
its amazing and he has my vote.
