Then write your apps in FORTRAN. (But then, you aren't the OP...)

I'm not going to try. Well, not much... Since all the functions
are already written in a compiled language, what you're really doing
is using Python as "stitching".
You really ought to take a look at NumPy, and compare it to whatever
you write in C/C++. In addition to the standard C->Python bindings,
NumPy also has interfaces to your existing FORTRAN and C++ libraries.
