I do not know much Cython, except for the fact that it is out there
and what it is supposed to do., but wouldnt Cython need a compiler too
? I imagine distributing Cython based code would incur similar amounts
of schlep.

But yes, you raise a valid point.  It does cause annoyances. One that
I have faced is with running the same code simultaneously over a mix
of 32 bit and 64 bit machines. But this is  because the source code
hashing function does not take the architecture into account. Shouldnt
be hard to fix.
