Yes, what Eric is suggesting is a baseline tool like Cython be added to Python itself so it becomes the minimum, common tool that we point all extension authors to.
You didn't answer Victor's "stupid question": we can already point extension authors to Cython. Why do we need a new tool which will very likely have less features than the already-existing Cython?
then we will have to provide an FFI compiler for people to use in at least the simple cases.
Cython is *not* an FFI tool. It can be used for FFI but that's just one of its many use cases.
