I think that's where the misunderstanding lies: This list is about the
Python C-API and not about generators or other helpers that provide
ways of avoiding it :-)


IMHO, the list is about:

 * discussing ways of improving the Python C API

 * helping developers that have questions about the Python C API

Suggesting to use Cython or any of the other available tools feels
a bit like saying "avoid the Python C API wherever you can", which
doesn't give the right impression to developers seeking help from
this forum.
