yes, I agree with amaury. My proposal was just "a dirty hack" to make things 
working in the short term.

In the long run, I think that the best for pypy would be either an rpython 
backend or the python+ctypes backend which Romain began. Or, possibly, a 
python+_ffi backend in case ctypes is too slow (and once _ffi is powerful 
enough to substitute ctypes entirely).
