Hi Martijn,

That's not necessarily hard.  I believe that Cython code like this:

   PyObject *x = PyDict_GetItem(y, key)

can correspond "faithfully" to Python code like that --- if we assume
that 'y' contains really a dict:

   x = y[key]

I don't know to what extend the whole C API can be mapped back to
Python, but certainly the most common functions can.

A bientôt,
