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.
