Going right back to basics and building non-Python components is a much bigger task and not one that is required if you are only making alterations at the Python level.
Thanks, it is much clearer now.
Would it be technically possible to put those C modules, libraries etc.. in a directory in binary form, and make them available to your python code, so you don't have to use a binary at all? In Java, you can use the classpath to achieve that.
