  The issues involved in a good C-extension package (should really be
  multi-version, if possible)  and a pure python package (is usually 
  version independent, may need >> version, but there is a significant
  risk of new releases not being backwards compatible in corner cases,

  probably want an example of each, if you are going to do examples.
