I (mistakenly) thought that modules generally -were- pure python.  I 
actually had been under the impression that a module was simply an 
organized batch of code that could be imported into another bit of code 
for the purpose of reusability.

I didn't realize that you could write a module in C and import it into 
Python.  Or -- do you refer to extensions to Python's abilities that 
would not otherwise be available to the language (that need to be coded 
in C to gain access to certain things that Python couldn't already do)?
