ok looking at that code, I'm not sure I understand how it addresses the PyObject_HEAD thing, unless there's something I'm not seeing
I'll ask directly - how would an extension library define a type, and how would it access its own data at the end of objects of that type?
I'm also skeptical that a static library would provide any savings vs treating the functions like every other function in the api... a precompiled header might, but while I don't fully understand how precompiled headers are used, I don't *think* it would allow extension libraries to ship as a dll/so file as they currently can.
