No, the point of the article was to write Python code that is as fast as 
the Julia code.

I don't know why the Julia programmers chose to use such a poor 
algorithm: maybe they are show-casing just how amazingly awesome the 
Julia compiler is that it can even make a rubbish algorithm run fast. I 
don't care -- they can choose whatever algorithm they like for their 
Julia code, but I don't really care how good the language is at running 
bad code that I would never use in real life.
