And this has been discussed on python-dev. Greg has stated though that
he doesn't feel it's ready (there are other factors, but this one is
overriding). There were also discussions about the fact that to get
maximum performance out of pyrex, it's necessary to produce very
non-pythonic code.

FWIW, I'm strongly in favour of Pyrex eventually becoming part of the
Python distribution.
