Certainly not. The raw Python/C API is still fully accessible by simply
saying "import python". (I've been careful to always say "private import
python" in Pyd's source, so it isn't available by simply saying "import
(As a matter of fact, mixing the Python/C API with Pyd is currently
necessary as the whole thing hasn't been wrapped quite yet.)
As for compilation with the distutils-style setup.py, this is my
preferred method. At the moment, the setup.py file itself needs to be
told what Pyd's source files are. By integrating the two projects,
compiling these files can be done automatically, perhaps with a flag in
the setup.py to build in "classic," object-oriented-layer-free mode.
