You could have a privileged C extension that is only imported in the main

if get_current_interp() is main_interp():
    from _decimal import *
    from _pydecimal import *

​​Oops.. it should of course be "by_this_process", not "by_other_process" (fixed below).​​

​Or it could be first-come first-served:

if is_imported_by_
    from _pydecimal import *
    from _decimal import *
