Just to clarify for everyone, I think you mean "Cython" instead of "cpython". We 
often use "CPython" to refer to the standard Python interpreter implemented in C 
(as opposed to Java's Jython or .NET's IronPython). This is distinct from the 
Cython package, which provides a tool for writing extension modules for the 
CPython interpreter. That one letter is quite important. :-)
