The big gain in mod-py is not the compilation issue but the fact
that the interpreter is already running - at least I assume thats
For the comilation bit if your program consists of:
Then the compilation overhead is minimal and it pulls in the pyc
for the bulk of the program...
But I suspect that compared to the startup time of python itself
thats a minimal saving.
