[Python-3000] Modules with Dual Python/C Implementations

Has anyone considered consolidating the module pairs that have both a
C and Python implementation? For example, pickle and cPickle and
StingIO and cStringIO. It seems like keeping both around might be
counter productive. It leads to more code for bugs, issues when there
are accidental differences between the two, leading to misdiagnosed
errors or hard to find bugs when people test with pickle and run with
cPickle. Just seems like all around, if there was found to be a reason
to make a module in C over its original Python version, the original
doesn't need to stick around.

Read my blog! I depend on your acceptance of my opinion! I am interesting!
