There sure are python programs that run only under windows too ;)

Not that I'd recommend writing them in such a way but it happens, 
especially if they are developed/debugged under windows only and/or use 
windows-specific extensions.

Banning such extensions also seems stupid, as one of main strengths of 
python is its extensibility.

And the fact that you can't use some stackless python features
under plain c-python does not bother me at all.

It would not bother me even if people at Transmeta would make
Crusoe JIT to interpret python bytecodes directly ;) 

I would say that it would make me very glad instead, even if it causes
python programs make "wrong" assumptions and thus run prohibitively slow 
even on 1.4 GHz Athlons .
