It's about this hard, in fact:
Should you remove the old _failed file before renaming the newly-failed one?
Well, you /could/ do but setup.py is probably only run on sufficiently posixly platforms that it doesn't matter? I'll be safe any way.
One little point (or I'd have checked it in already): should we make efforts to not install the _failed.so turds?
People apparently want the file, so just install it.
OK. That's also the easier option, another advantage :)
