Insert cursor multiple rows

I am using an insert cursor to create many (>5,000) new rows in a feature class.  The cursor is drawing shapes from one feature class and a variety of attributes from a series to tables to create a large "flatfile" featureclass.  It is taking a very long time to run.  In VBA, there was a "rowbuffer" object that was more efficient than inserting single row objects -- is there something similar in Python?  Is there a faster way to add rows than an insert cursor on the feature class object (by creating a feature layer or table view first)?
