New version of my md5sum.py program limited to 10 threads. New 
benchmark with 160 files (size in 7..10 MB):
 - Python unpatched: best=4.8 sec
 - C version (/usr/bin/md5sum): best=3.6 sec
 - Python patched: best=2.1 sec

As everybody knows, Python is faster than the C language ;-) And the 
patch is really useful (the program is more than twice faster with 4 
cores).
