Hm... I don't buy it.  At Antarcti.ca we use perl (logically equivalent 
to python in this context) for processing large input data pools, Java 
for really complicated geometric layout algorithms that are being 
refined and improved all the time, and C for apache modules that 
manipulate large shared-memory data structures to process hundreds of 
complex map-views per second on commodity Intel hardware.  None of these 
would be improved by replacing them with either of the others. -Tim
