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).
