As a data point, I just presented a tutorial here at OSCON on Python 3
Porting, and had a number of people asking about C API changes. I
punted for my talk (*) because things are still in flux. Plus I only
had 3 hours. I did suggest that if your extension is just glue to a C
library, you should consider using ctypes.

So yes, collecting this information, even if it's just in a wiki page,
would be a good and popular thing.
