10 lines of Python is so much nicer than 3000 lines of C, especially when they both do the same thing and have near identical runtime efficiency (as most of the work is done in library code, written in C).
10 lines of C are so much nicer than 3000 lines of Python, too - what's your point?
And it seems pretty silly to count the library code in when you talk about 3000 lines of C but not when you talk about the 10 lines of Python, *especially* when you actually rely on the fact that all Python really does is call C code in order to be able to assert that Python does not impose a efficiency penalty...
