I think it works for the cpython case outside the standard library. However,
my idea was a simple binary ABI which would be very easy for any python
implementation to use, and so would would be suitable for wrapping libraries
in the standard library.
Maybe there are cython implementations coming soon available for pypy,
jython, ironpython, etc...? These would still have to compile to C code to
get build time API checking, which is one of the ctypes issues.
