python3.0 - any hope it will get faster?

Hi,

I was somewhat surprised when I ran pystones with python-2.5.2 and
with python-3.0

On my old/slow machine I get

python-2.5.2
from test import pystone
pystone.pystones()
gives (2.73, 18315.018315018315)

python-3.0
from test import pystone
pystone.pystones()
gives (4.2700000000000005, 11709.60187353629

That's a drop of 36% !

I know that processing unicode is inherently slower,
but still I was surprised that it's so much slower.

Is there any hope Python-3.0 will get faster or
is the main potential for optimizations exhausted, already?

That's not to start a flame war!
I know computers get faster, we human beings don't (me, at least)

On my WinXP notebook

python-3.0

>>> from test import pystone
>>> pystone.pystones()

(1.1734318188484849, 42610.059823557647)


python-2.5.1

>>> from test import pystone
>>> pystone.pystones()

(1.2927221197107452, 38678.07260170330
