I'd rather not drop it:  can we (today) justify the need for the C
extension?  If nothing else, that explanation needs to be added to the
package docs.  If the justification is "support the model of untrusted
code", could we not make the extension optional, and let folks who don't
have that use case get by without needing to pay the price?  For that
matter, who actually has the use case in Z3 land?  I don't know of *any*
deployed applications which use persistent code, and therefore which
need to worry about the problem.

Certainly nothing in Zope2 land uses space suits.
