I guess that I don't really have very strong arguments to support my
position. My preference for Option 1 is mostly due to inertia (many
modules already used DL_EXPORT) and the normal human instinct to avoid
pain -- one stops banging their head when it hurts too much. :,)
But seriously, there is one (albeit small) advantage to Option 1. Which
is the ability to build the shared extension using either the traditional
Misc/Makefile.pre.in or newer Distutils method.

Hmm...demi-god. What are you going to call me after I write my sixth
Python script? :,)

You may want to try the distutils-sig at python.org list too. You may have
better luck there.
