Well, I know that Jython uses the original stdlib modules through
svn:externals in the build, last thing I heard about IronPython was that
they are allowed to use other people's code now, so I imagine they do the
same thing, and I wouldn't expect PyPy to rewrite the existing Python code
that exists in the stdlib. So the only remaining problem are the C
extensions in CPython, and that's the minor part I mentioned above.
