C would be better, because Python is an interpreted language, and thus
not suitable for writing shared object libraries.

Please correct me if I'm wrong here - I'm new to Python, but certainly
not new to C.

Of course, my preference would be C++, but that's perhaps flame bait
which doesn't belong in this news group :-)
