Interesting (although there is no code).  

This reminds me of the task of reimplementing C-coded
libraries in Python which seems to be needed for a couple of
projects (Jython, IronPython, this new pycore one) and
certainly for PyPy even more so as we are approaching
low-level translations.  

So i guess we should think about organizing this effort in a
pypy-independent way i.e. it should be equally accessible to
all projects/interested parties and have a code base that can
be deployed within all the implementations.  What do you
think? Anyone interested to head/contribute to such an effort? 

cheers, 

    Holger
