As noted in a posting to python-dev, I've re-evaluated my test methodology.
The results are as follows, with details of the PyBench runs in the 
pybench_summary.txt attachment:

test details
============

pystone:
 average of 3 runs

int 1:
 ./python -m timeit -s "range(1000)" "range(250)"

int 2:
 ./python -m timeit -s "range(1000)" "range(257,507)"

int 3:
 ./python -m timeit -s "range(10000)" "range(10000)"

int 4:
 ./python -m timeit -s "range(11000)" "range(257,10507)"

float 1:
 ./python -m timeit -s "[float(x) for x in range(1000)]" \
 "[float(x) for x in range(1000)]"

float 2:
 ./python -m timeit -s "map(float, range(1000))" "map(float, range(1000))"

float 3:
 ./python -m timeit -s "t = range(1000)" "map(float, t)"

float 4:
 ./python -m timeit -s "t = range(100)" "map(float, t)"

float 5:
 ./python -m timeit -s "t = range(10000)" "map(float, t)"

pybench:
 average runtime per round of ./python Tools/pybench/pybench.py -f <logfile>
