There are a number of optional C extensions. So, perhaps, depending on 
what parts you're using, it could be faster. They're written in C, 
though, so generally I would assume that the potential for *in*stability 
is higher when you use them, but that's not a comment about any of our C 
extensions specifically. ;-)

So, you get C extensions and bin scripts in $prefix when you use 
setup.py. Nothing critical.

However! Before you forget this topic: you said you had a problem with 
running setup.py, so a real bug report would be very much appreciated.
