I see, thanks for the clarification.

I will make the point though that this makes python 3.0 unsuited for
anyone who has to process data. One could live with slowdowns of say
20-50 percent, to get the goodies that 3.0 offers, but when a process
that takes 1 second suddenly starts to take 10, it is makes the
situation untenable.
