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.
