There are no immediate plans for supporting C extensions to pypy
besides via ctypes or rpython. RPython is fairly fast these days, try
it out if you like (big fat warning, rpython is an obscure language).
Also usecases like sympy one should see relatively good speedups via
JIT. Did you try using psyco?
