Comment #2 on issue 242 by gpsmith: Can no longer install protobuf on pypy

Yes the extension module is intended to be optional. Conditionally checking if we should compile the C extension in the file before passing ext_modules would work.

platform.python_implementation() == 'CPython' would work... but that isn't available on Python 2.4 or 2.5. So some more explicit checks to avoid compiling it on pypy, ironpython and jython would help.
