For the record, this seems to make large allocations slower:

-> with patch:
$ ./python -m timeit "b'x'*200000"
10000 loops, best of 3: 27.2 usec per loop

-> without patch:
$ ./python -m timeit "b'x'*200000"
100000 loops, best of 3: 7.4 usec per loop

Not sure we should care, though. It's still very fast.
