In fact, PyPy is able to translate a subset of ctypes into a number of
code types including C code with type inferencing allowing for
significant code simplification... i.e. the code should get close to the
speed of directly C-coded source code.
The wrappers are also built from gcc-xml output (for the "raw" API), I
*believe* pyrex already has a mechanism that allows for the same
transformation (i.e. build a raw API from raw gcc-xml). Which is to
say, we could, in theory, provide a way to register a "raw" API plugin
for PyOpenGL that would allow for entirely replacing the core-code
operations (or something like that). That way a compiled system could
provide a run-time pluggable replacement for the pure-python code... in
Have to get back to work now.
