That's true if your *really* need C's extra speed.
Most of the times, a better algorithm or psyco (or shedskin) can help
without having to use any other language.
This is unless you are hacking a kernel, writing device drivers or 3D
image processing.
For anything else, python is fast enough if you know how to optimize
your code.
