[David, could this be a sprint issue?] 

Here is the difference between python and C coded modules.  The x.y docs are for all implementations of x.y.  The python-coded modules are intended for use by all implementations, perhaps with minor modifications.  In any case, the users of all implementation can presumably read Python code.  The C implementations used by CPython are specific to CPython, and not necessarily meaningful to user of Jython, IronPython, PyPy, or any other alternatives.

In any case, Guido has unambiguiously pronounced on linking to Python source files.  Doing that is enough for one issue.  I changed the title to be specific.
