As a data point, I just presented a tutorial here at OSCON on Python 3 Porting, and had a number of people asking about C API changes. I punted for my talk (*) because things are still in flux. Plus I only had 3 hours. I did suggest that if your extension is just glue to a C library, you should consider using ctypes.
So yes, collecting this information, even if it's just in a wiki page, would be a good and popular thing.

I agree. Writing an actual *guide* can wait, but documenting the differences with code examples is a work that can start now, and I agree that it would be great if this would start now.
But writing a guide might not be a good idea until we know what the changes are, and if the API is changing quickly now we don't. :-)
