Yes, I'm assuming the case where the Python and C
versions are functionally equivalent. If not, then
either the extra features of the Python version should
be ported to the C version first, or the features
should be partitioned into two non-overlapping
modules. Having two almost-but-not-quite identically
functioning modules is not a good idea.
