I should have been more clear: what I meant was to engage the Python
community to get such a feature to be implemented upstream in Python
itself. Since I would find it easy to believe that other Python
Extension projects may run into similar issues, it may be worth
raising this issue to the Python community and opening the debate there.

That being said, Nysal also posted an interesting approach. :-)
