In #2148 I propose removing incomplete ctypes support in favor of CFFI

We plan to finally resolve by using JyNI, see #2148 - this moves this dependency out of Jython core however

Closing out in favor of using JyNI for its support of C ext API and ctypes. No way are we going to touch ctypes at this point in Jython core - it's just too much work.
