Meanwhile, can you please release (wherever you normally release
things;-) the pure-Python version as well?  I'd like to play around
with it in Google App Engine opensource sandboxes (e.g., cfr.
gae-json-rest -- I'll be delighted to add you to that project if you
want of course;-) and that requires Python 2.5 and only pure-Python
add-ons... thanks!
