If you need to rewrite Python code for performance, I'd recommend using
Pyrex/Cython. (www.cython.org).

It let's you get away with small changes to your code as a starter
(Cython is relative compatible syntax-wise with Python), and you can add
"C type annotations" as needed. (And no, C++ is not cost effective
compared to C in this "Python speedup" scenario: you get a more complex
solution without readily available benefits.)

It's also integrated with distutils/setuptools.
