Just to be clear, what I don't know is: among projects out there that depend on
win32api, which proportion don't care about the performance of calls to win32api
functions, and which proportion do care?  If it's often the case that Python
projects tend to call many short-running functions of win32api, then simply
attempting to recompile it with cpyext is going to give terribly bad
performance.  In that case, we'd need to redo win32api with cffi.  But I would
like someone that knows a bit of all of Python-on-Windows, win32api and PyPy to
chime in.
