      This is not the case here. It's easy to check that the time it takes to
      run the no-op Python loop is proportional to the number of steps, which
      means it is not skipped:

      let start = reltime()
      python for i in range(10000000): pass
      echo reltimestr(reltime(start))
      let start = reltime()
      python for i in range(100000): pass
      echo reltimestr(reltime(start))

      I also tried adding some code to the body of each loop in my first
      example and still got about 30-fold difference.
