Dependencies.create_extension_list() cannot be called with ctx=None #2973

I'd like to use this function outside of Cython. This line causes an AttributeError to be raised when ctx=None:

create_extension = ctx.options.create_extension or default_create_extension

I'll explain why I'm using this.

For pygame, we have most of the source code in src_c/, including .pyx files. Relative cimports from subpackages (eg src_c/subpackage) do not work, because Cython tries to import the module src_c.package.module at runtime, or it fails with an error message about relative imports beyond root.

So I moved all the .pyx files into src_c/cython/pygame. Now it works, but cythonize() didn't let me output .c files to src_c/ rather than src_c/pygame, so I duplicated some of the code from cythonize() in our setup script. But I'd also like to check dependencies.

So I have two other suggestions:

  1. cythonize() might allow allow you to specify per-extension paths to .c files instead of using a hardcoded name.
  2. Relative cimports might do relative imports with the C API at runtime rather than absolute imports, if possible.
