Hi,
just wanted to show an example of how python3 + numpy compares with just
python3 and many other languages and language implementations:
http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/u64q/performance.php?test=mandelbrot#about

The python3 program using numpy is #6 and you find it with the
"interesting alternative" programs on the bottom because it was
disqualified for doing things differently. It is 6.3x slower than the
fastest program and well ahead of all other interpreted languages.

Thanks to all contributors for making numpy such a great piece of
software!

Greetings,
Dieter
