If I do the following:

def mmap_search(f, string):
fh = file(f)
mm = mmap.mmap(fh.fileno(), 0, mmap.MAP_SHARED, mmap.PROT_READ)

return mm.find(string)

def mmap_is_in(f, string):
fh = file(f)
mm = mmap.mmap(fh.fileno(), 0, mmap.MAP_SHARED, mmap.PROT_READ)

return string in mm

then a sample mmap_search() call on a 50MB file takes 0.18 seconds, but
the mmap_is_in() call takes 6.6 seconds. Is the mmap class missing an
operator and falling back to a slow default implementation? Presumably
I can implement the latter in terms of the former.
Looks like you should define the sq_contains member in mmap_as_sequence,
and the type should have the Py_TPFLAGS_HAVE_SEQUENCE_IN flag set (all in
mmapmodule.c)
