What are you doing that the speed decrease matters?
What are you doing that is so secret?

If it really is too slow (i.e. 100 times slower than C++ is one thing, but 
if it still only takes 0.1s is that really a problem?), consider writing 
the slow part in C or C++ as a compiled extension. That could get you the 
speed and mildly-increased-code-security you desire for the delicate parts 
of your program, plus the advantages of Python for all the rest.
