This is perhaps the most important issue for scientific and algorithmic 
codes.

Not having to resort to Cython, C, C++ or Fortran to get decent 
performance for algorithmic code would be great.

It could also put Python/Numba high up on the Debian shootout ;-)

Or one could benchmark a pure Python version of timsort against the 
standard library.
