Oh nice, python_startup benchmark at Nov 10 (rev at 8ebaa546a033) is now faster than python_startup at Feb 29 (rev dfeadfb4c8cc): new 16.8 ms, old 19.5. And it's much before when I opened the issue: 26.6 ms. Thanks.

The main difference is the removal of "import re" from Lib/ If I added back "import re", python_startup comes back to 24.2 ms +- 0.0 ms. I understand that "import re" adds 7.4 ms. Any additional import has an important cost of python startup performance :-/
