I was asking some questions about Pythons C/API in the python-dev
mailing list and 2 of the guys there suggested I start a new mailing

Agree a Python/C API List would be great, in fact I cant see any reasons
not to have it- likely the pure python users dont want to know about
refcounting problems.. etc anyway.
There are lists/newsgroup for py2exe and pyrex, Python-ObjectiveC etc,
Python/C API seems much more generic, and its also fairly tricky to use
at times - when doing more advanced stuff (subtyping has been tricky for
me anyway). I expect the dev's of pyrex, pygame etc might also need to
discuss C API spesific issues as well.
