There is a structure to it, but it's more organic because of the 
multiple contributors.

weave should be in NumPy but nobody was willing to step up to maintain 
it a year ago.   I may be willing to step up at this point.   I would 
like to see weave in NumPy (maybe not the blitz libraries though...)

I think a hybrid for weave / f2py / ctypes that allows "inlining in 
multiple languages" as well as automatic extension module generation for 
"already-written" code is in order.
