The sets module, including sets.Set(), were first introduced in Python
2.3 and is written in Python.
The built-in set object was introduced in Python 2.4 and is re-written
in C for speed.
Functionally, they are identical. Speed-wise, the built-in version is
much faster, so unless you need to support Python 2.3, always use the
built-in set type.
