If you want, I can add you as developer to the ctypes project.  Then you
can upload them to the ctypes files section (I assume these builds will
also be of interest to other people, and they are related to ctypes as
well).  If you agree, send me your SF username by private mail.

No, except that I want to use decorators, if at all possible. But this
can wait.
