I profiled a bit, and, at least in this example, these two functions
seem to be extremely inefficient in combination:

(defun python-nav-beginning-of-statement ()
  "Move to start of current statement."
  (interactive "^")
  (while (and (or (back-to-indentation) t)
              (not (bobp))
              (when (or
                     (save-excursion
                       (forward-line -1)
                       (python-info-line-ends-backslash-p))
                     (python-syntax-context 'string)
                     (python-syntax-context 'paren))
                (forward-line -1))))
  (point-marker))

(defun python-info-line-ends-backslash-p (&optional line-number)
  "Return non-nil if current line ends with backslash.
With optional argument LINE-NUMBER, check that line instead."
  (save-excursion
    (save-restriction
      (widen)
      (when line-number
        (python-util-goto-line line-number))
      (while (and (not (eobp))
                  (goto-char (line-end-position))
                  (python-syntax-context 'paren)
                  (not (equal (char-before (point)) ?\\)))
        (forward-line 1))
      (when (equal (char-before) ?\\)
        (point-marker)))))

They consume most of the time used.  While the first function goes
backward, the second goes forward to the end in every loop cycle.  This
makes the thing O(n^2), with n being the number of lines of the
expression.

I don't know Python, so I can't make any suggestions.  Who can?  At
least, changing the order of `or' expressions in
`python-nav-beginning-of-statement' seems to help in the example case:

(defun python-nav-beginning-of-statement ()
  "Move to start of current statement."
  (interactive "^")
  (while (and (or (back-to-indentation) t)
              (not (bobp))
              (when (or
                     (python-syntax-context 'string)
                     (python-syntax-context 'paren)
                     (save-excursion
                       (forward-line -1)
                       (python-info-line-ends-backslash-p)))
                (forward-line -1))))
  (point-marker))

It's also not efficient how often `syntax-ppss' is called all the time.

Michael.
