Well, the core issue is a disagreement on the way to go.

I would agree with Benjamin's and Christian's proposal, given that it's quite practical to implement. Guido's proposal means we would have to add new modules just so that the relevant C types can be exposed "at the right place".

The types module is generally used for low-level trickery (since most useful types are accessible from the builtin namespace), and IMO it makes sense to have a dedicated module for that.
