I just got my solution accepted, it ran in 14 seconds though.
I have no idea how to shave more seconds off, so I think 7.5 seconds for the fastest 
solution is really mindboggling.

Things that eventually made my solution run within the time limit:
- I didn't use int()
- I used Psyco

Those two resulted in the biggest speed increase.
Tweaking with buffered/unbuffered IO was insignificant.
