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

http://groups.google.com/groups?dq=&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&threadm=mailman.1031047453.13193.python-list%40python.org&prev=/groups%3Fhl%3Den%26group%3Dcomp.lang.python

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.
