A good way to test that promise (or other implications like performance) might also be to rewrite the standard library extensions in Cython and see where it leads.
Not sure I understand what you're saying here. stdlib extension modules are currently written in C, with a bit of code generation. How is that different?
When you are saying that writing C extensions is unnecessary, because everything can be easily written in Cython, start persuading me by rewriting all C extensions included in CPython into Cython. If you are not willing to do it, why I should I start rewriting my 7k lines of SWIG code to Cython, just because you hope that somebody finally finally (please!) notices existence of PyPy and hopefully starts to care about it. No, they won’t.
