I can't install Sage into my virtual environment, so I can't run

But I can run it finally, with `sage -python` command.
And I
profiled what is the bottleneck of this oneliner.


Cython does optimizations like CPython does internally.
When calling function with one arg, and if the function is PyCFunction,
Cython call underlaying C function directly.

  cfunc = PyCFunction_GET_FUNCTION(func);
  self = PyCFunction_GET_SELF(func);
  result = cfunc(self, arg);

This is why such regression happened on even Python 2.7.
And I think I can write small benchmark emulate it for now.
