Speed has never been an issue for me with Python. For my masters
degree I did a project that involved a lot of number crunching, and in
my proposal I wrote that I'd use Python for most of the code and C for
any parts that were unacceptably slow. In practice, not only did I
never need to replace any parts with C, I never even needed to use
numpy; it was quite fast enough as it was.

But what's common for one person may be uncommon for another. And
sometimes "possible" isn't enough, or we'd all be using INTERCAL!
Another, quite different example to the one I was referring to earlier
is the fact that I often work with safety critical systems. I don't
think formal proof of program behaviour would be at all
straightforward in Python (or C# for that matter, and although Spec#
gets closer, it really needs a language like Spark Ada).
