Fast-Nop2682673dIf performance were important for your code parts, you wouldn't use Python in the first place, would you?
Lor-inc436373dSame. Although to be fair I wouldn't ever use C for something that has more than 20ms to return or as glue for such, so it kinda makes sense.
hjk101231872dI think part of the problem is that you have so much control you want to take advantage of it. More than the situation dictates.
When confronted with memory management I want to do it well. In python you don't have much influence on it so you focus on the problem at hand and make the best structured solution.
The other part is indeed mentioned by the rest. You go for more level because performance matters so you have to optimize or do it out of habit.
Some one else have another reason?
