No, you’re not wrong at all.

This is much more in the original spirit for dealing with the inevitable issues where Python just doesn’t cut it performance-wise. The idea was to do everything in Python, and where there was a bottleneck, write a C module for that function and integrate it using ctypes. 

So could someone from the Designate team do the following: isolate the part(s) of the process where Go kicks Python’s butt, create small Go packages to handle them, and then use gopy to integrate it? I think there would be little or no controversy with this approach, as it’s much less disruptive to the overall community.
