I don't know the C extension/Pyrex answer. However I thought Henk 
Punt did some similar work with libevent, Stackless, and pyrex?


>I'd like to translate a function like this to Pyrex:

Peter, here is something I have wondered about and would like to 
test: is it really better to suspend and resume a tasklet when low 
level data is available? Or when a high level message is available? 
To me the issue revolves around context switches. Intuitively I would
think the later.
