Maybe I understood and ctypes ImportError simply must be handled and fallbacked to something else. But there are only 3 ways of getting MAC address:
1. using popen
2. using ctypes and native calls
3. using C API and performing native calls in extension

And ctypes seems to be the best choice: it's portable across Python VMs (better that 3) and faster (better than 1).
