After creating a new temporary buffer, (py-execute-region) calls
(python-mode) in the temp buffer. That call to (python-mode) was
becoming a pain - every time I ran a piece of code, emacs was slowing
me down as it re-loaded the libraries I have hooked in to python-mode.
Commenting out line 1,733 sped things up.
