The difference between Python and another dynamic language might be a

Thanks, that makes me feel much better about my own work! If a magnitude
difference in performance can be so casually dismissed.
Yep! Your work is awesome, because your code is only a little bit
slower than the same algorithm with the same bugs in a better-known
language that's supported on more platforms and has a large team of
people supporting it.
Remind me what's actually advantageous about your language?
I don't know what point you're making here. Unless it's that no software
is worth writing unless it's done on a big scale with a huge team of
people, and is very well known.
My own point should be clear:
Python is 10 times slower than a competitor = doesn't matter
My language is 1.5 times slower than the big boys' = matters a great deal
