From @scoder 's comment in #2298 about pyximport internals:

Right, and that is totally a bug. It should really use cythonize(). Definitely something to list under "limitations" below.

Since pyximport does not use Cythonize internally, it prevents the use of compiler directives at the top of the .py or .pyx files. Also, using Cythonize could potentially remove quite a bit of code (potentially, all the code in cython/pyximport/ could be removed).
