yes for two reasons, one relative, one more objective :

- you'll write cleaner and shorter programs with python, so more easy to
  optimize
- when you'll really need speed, you'll write standalone web-server with
  python, and so a lot more eficient and fast in high trafic.

I've rewrite my "high" trafic web site from php to python and gain 10x of
speed.
