What I would like to obtain is that modules generated by SIP do not depend
on an external module (sip.pyd). This is technically possible of course,
it's just that SIP was designed in a different way.

This is the current design, I'm asking to add an option to change this.

To be clear, I'm not speaking of embedding sip.pyd in python.dll as a
builtin module. I'm speaking of totally *removing* sip.pyd as a module, and
just "put" all the necessary code within my own extension module created by
