Ok, I am confused. I asked the question because I thought the ctypes 
dependency itself may be problematic (who uses python 2.4 or 2.3 ? Is 
there a list of versions we have to support ?).

Is the problem locating an external library ? Because otherwise, I do 
not see the different between ctypes or any other ways to wrap c code 
(swig, C api, etc... which is used a lot already in scipy).
