These are already defined by pypy. What pypy does not provide is the exact same structure as used by 
CPython, it's just not possible.

As long as lxml only uses PyListObject as opaque pointers, it does not make any difference.  But lxml 
should not use PyListObject struct members.  There are macros and functions for all usages, like 
lxml C code is mostly generated by Cython.  I know for sure that Cython fixed a lot of "incorrect" 
(i.e. too CPython-specific) usages of the API.

But let's be concrete: I suppose you got compilation errors? What are they?
