PyInline's last news update was in 2004 where the author gives a "Hats
of[f] to PyRex", prior to that only a few blog entries in 2001/2002, I've
not come across any project using it but maybe that is not sufficient to
call it deprecated/dead? Does it work with Python 3?
Pyrex no longer has a userbase. Last ML post was 2014.
Weave only supports python2, got ripped out of Scipy and also directs to
check out Cython and strongly implies the project is all but
dead/maintenance mode: https://github.com/scipy/weave
Did I miss any of the python driven ways?
