external indeed is meant only for vendor drops.

I personally don't mind having the "upstream" ctypes repository also
in svn.python.org; this would be similar to distutils, setuptools,
and (I think) the email package. Currently, some of them live in
sandbox/trunk, but I wouldn't mind it living in /ctypes/trunk, either.
Be aware that the set of committers to svn.python.org/projects is
currently restricted to Python committers.
