Note that your C-coded functions may (and probably should)
be written to co-operate with the Numeric module, which
offers a good C-oriented API too -- if your functions are
or may be applied to a substantial "bunch" of data at a
time, holding that "bunch" in a Numeric.array is MUCH
faster than holding it in a Python list or array.array,
not to mention the multidimensional flexibility you also
get with Numeric.
