Could you please suggest some background information/links to this?
I tried to Google for it but unsurprisingly any combination with 
'cpython' and 'performance' results (to me that is) in a haystack of rants.

I did find http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0339/ but I would ideally 
like to read something more in depth but still in reasonable easy language.
