There is probably a lot of things you can check before assuming you
need some sort of acceleration, eg. the basics: are all the packages &
modules your application uses compiled? Are the pycs up to date?
Google for

Is the (your) application doing an insane amount of work at startup,
like reading a massive XML configuration file? Perhaps you could speed
that up by caching the loaded configuration as Python syntax in a new
file, or some other means that would make loading faster.
