Yes, cython is a fine tool and I wouldn't try to dissuade anyone from
using it if it works for them.
FullOfEels is for when the implementation should be hidden altogether.
Most often this is because of cross-platform differences or coding
horrors, but could also be handy for teaching when it's easier to just
give students plain Python modules to look at.
