You may find it considerably easier to use ctypes since that will avoid
the need for any patching.  You'll also be able to control how read and
write are done (eg read vs recvfrom vs recvmsg vs readv).  You can use
os.fdopen to convert your raw file descriptor into a Python file object
if appropriate.

If you do use ctypes then you'll only need to distribute pure Python
source code.
