After our discussion today: bzr-rebase >-) I'll see if I can package
that on monday.

I would think that we should put them in one package, or at least make
it somewhat mandatory to install the modules together with bzr. The main
issue with the pyrex code is the requirements and complexity of the
build process - which is handled by the packager in the case of Debian
and Ubuntu. I don't see any reason not to always want to use the pyrex
stuff given that it's faster. Or are there any disadvantages to pyrex
for the user that I'm missing?
