Sorry for the lack of accuracy, for "quick and dirty" I was thinking
in the basic installation, like the binary downloads or the Ubuntu
repositories, where they are not linked to optimized libraries, or
else pre-compiled not fully optimized versions are used.

This is important for a newcomer, that may come to Python hearing of
its simplicity (where its Plug&Play nature is, I think, a main reason
for its sucess in science), so he just want to try it out, get
started, and keep things easy. Once you actually need computing power,
you can think about improving your installation.
