Some crude C benchmarking on this computer:
- calling PyUnicode_Replace is 35 ns (per call)
- calling "hundred".replace is 125 ns
- calling PyArg_ParseTuple with the same signature as "hundred".replace is 80 ns

Therefore, most of the overhead (125 - 35 = 90 ns) is in calling PyArg_ParseTuple() to unpack the method arguments.
