Careful: the ctypes module is much slower with pypy than with cpython.

In any case, a C extension module is preferred because the (platform-dependent) details of the liblzma library are defined in a .h header file, not as a ctypes description.  Future versions of the library are likely to be source-compatible, but may change some struct member for example; this would break a ctypes-based interface.
