As you haven't provided a link to Akkana's script, we have no way to compare if 
the scripts are even remotely similar.

My experience with writing a script in Scheme, then converting it to Python was 
that it runs considerably faster in Python, so I think it's as Ofnuts says, 
it's entirely dependent on what you are trying to do.

Subject: Re: [Gimp-user] python-fu vs script-fu

I don't see the difference to be about efficiency. There is noticeable
lag when executing python-fu.

E.g., when I run Akkana Peck's show_py_ui.py plugin, and compare this
with GIMP.org's test-sphere.scm script there is a big difference in
performance up to launcing the UI. I note show_py_ui.py is a smaller
file size, 3kb compared to test-sphere.scm's 6kb (12kb inc comments).

Is it just me on pre-build OSX?

Thanks.
