I certainly don't know if it's universal. I do know that the extcompiler
with a time sensitive module I ported to rpython is the only real
practical use for pypy that I have had. I don't have the interest or
time to offer to maintain the extcompiler (only used it for a personal
hobby project which is on the back burner for the moment anyway) and
after getting longs to work in the cpy object space I do appreciate the
pain it may be to maintain.
P.S. There is a certain irony that ShedSkin is growing a rudimentary
extension compiler at the moment. :}
