To my experience python is quite fast, when the underlying C components 
do most of the work (like with pyode, numpy, etc.).
The C-python interpreter can't be called fast on the other hand, at 
least compared to C/C++. If you do DSP processing using Python 
statements (not numpy) it's really a waste of cpu.

greetings, Thomas
