It is often the practice to put make a Python module that imports a C
module.  That's what I'm doing with Multipack
http://oliphant.netpedia.net/multipack.html
You can construct C-modules that don't need a Python wrapping, however, it
is easier to handle the user-end API in Python.

If you are doing math intensive calculations, have you looked at the
Numeric extensions?

Good luck,

Travis
