I'm not sure that it's necessarily this difficult.  Perhaps it's simply
a matter of implementing Python's import/dlopen semantics and running
this C natively on the VM.

Perl was quite revolutionary in it's use of dynamic loading and the
entire autoload concept is native to the language.  I've not actually
tried, but I expect you could run up a Z2 using inline::Python.

Of course, I haven't been so closely following Perl6 and they are taking
a different approach to XS than Perl5 which could perhaps mean it's not
as featureful as we'd require - but then again one shouldn't discount
the Larry/Damian factor ...
