I suggest following the guidelines in PEP 399 for cross implementation
compatibility of the standard library:

1. Keep stat.py
2. Make the C version "_stat"
3. Add the following to the end of stat.py:

        from _stat import *
    except ImportError:

Run the tests with and without the C module in the test suite (again,
as per PEP 399).
