How about experience? I don't know about programming or system specifics,
but as a user, I have always found most programs written in python to be
prone to latency in screen redraws and freeze-ups.  You can test that on the
FR - just try Mofi, switch to say the home screen, and switch back.  You
will be able to see how long it takes before text appears.  I have seen this
happen everywhere.

Just from an efficiency point of view, don't you think a compiled program
may run better than an interpreted one on a system with limited hardware

Anyway, why do I bother...
