I agree. Shipping the generated C sources was a very good choice as long as CPython's C-API was very stable and getting a build time dependency safely installed on user side was very difficult.
These days, it's the opposite way.
Exactly -- shipping the generated C source used to be the standard of practice, but with wheels (and conda) binaries are the way to go for users without a compiler.
Cython can be pip installed -- so if you have a compiler that can compile C extensions, and you have Python, then getting Cython is trivial.
I can't imagine a system with a compiler that can't pip install cython -- I suppose it's possible on an operational system, but then the user should build a wheel on a develop machine themselves.
