Allowing operation in a pure-Python environment is a worthwhile goal,
which I support.
Unless it can be clearly demonstrated that the new method is equivalent
in both performance and security, talk of dropping the C extension seems
somewhat premature. A pure Python fallback for this module would however
be interesting to everybody, I think.
My suspicion from observing the discussions in this thread so far
indicate that a drop in code complexity doesn't seem to be a necessary
consequence of rewriting to Python either.
