It looks like they have a C native extension, so it isn't super trivial for them to do, but also lots of prior art. They would need to build a wheel for each Python they support x OS, so macOS-cp27 for example. (They can use a stable ABI so that you only need one wheel for Python 3 to work for each OS) They'd probably be more receptive if you offered to do it. As with any open source project, framing it like "what would you think about this? Would you be open to me helping with this?" rather than "my build is broken. Please fix" will take you a long way is a good website to talk about why it's great for libraries to release wheels instead of only sdists
