It's an interesting idea, but I think it's getting somewhat beyond
the scope of Pyrex. I don't think I'll be trying to implement
anything like that in the foreseeable future. The Pyrex compiler
is complicated enough already, and I don't want to add anything
more that isn't really necessary.

Same here, and even more so -- I'm *definitely* not going to
re-implement C++ templates! :-)
