They are good, but in Python, making them slower than a good and robust
I wonder if porting them from Python to Cython (the new pyrex) to get
the good and robust C implementation would be a good solution.
There was a huge discussion about that on the scipy list about a year
ago, when they were discussing GSoC"08 work and whether to use Cython
Actually don't know where that ended, how much Cython code they nowadays
Granted those vector classes may be simple enough to be easily doable in
raw c too .. but certainly the ease of making classes and methods in
normal py style in cython seems tempting to me, porting from py to cy is
not much work. Haven't written it myself yet, but Pyrex has seemed to
work well for Soya3d since many years already, and am considering using
Cython now for wrapping stuff in another project for work.
Don't have a strong opinion on that, nor know really what things in
pygame it might suite best, but just mentioning as a possibility.
