The Python-object-returning functions are already there.   All that is 
missing is the ctype functions to actually do the computation.   So, I'm 
not sure what you mean.

This would be good to get a list.   Some of the functions may require 
some repetition of what's in umathmodule.c.    Let's just do the 
repetition for now and think about code refactoring after we know better 
what is actually duplicated.

Tests would be necessary to ensure consistency.  

Thanks for jumping in...
