If you somehow can magic up a way to generate modules written in C
(for the standard CPython), in Java (for Jython) and in RPython (for
PyPy) from the same source, that would be really awsome and
incredibily useful.

But I admit that I have no idea about how to do it (if it's possible at all).

BTW, if you don't know it yet you may want to check out Pyrex
(<http://www.cosc.canterbury.ac.nz/greg.ewing/python/Pyrex/>) which
does something very similar, but in a different way.
