Uh, I had no clue you could do that.  I can think of no way to make it work in
PyPy, sorry.  How about you special-case that code for CPython versus PyPy?  We
could make it work on PyPy using a pile of slow hacks, but I guess slowness is
precisely what the code is trying to avoid.  On PyPy just use pure Python, e.g.
a for loop grabbing character pairs and doing some arithmetic on the ord's.
