This project idea did in fact get picked up for the 2006 Summer of Code. Development of the project continues as the Pyglet library. See for more.

Pygame wraps some SDL libraries (SDL, SDL_Image etc) using C code. It also provides some extra misc. C functions.

Python2.5 will include ctypes in the standard library. SoC 2006 is a good opportunity to recreate the pygame API using ctypes. This will let the average python programmer, who does not work with C, to hack on and extend pygame.

This same work (ctypes conversion) is already happening with PyOpenGL. Note that the pyopengl-ctypes project has been going for years now, and is still not complete.

Some notes...
