No, because we don't use Python where C would be more appropriate.
Sure nobody would complain if Python were faster, but it's not for
speed that we choose Python. Not speed of /execution/ that is.
Different languages have different trade-offs. Python's trade-offs
suit us. If they don't suit you, use a language with trade-offs that
do.
