Well, I know pretty well what f2py features scipy uses and
what could break scipy build. So, don't worry about that.

A branch for the unit tests changes is of course reasonable.

No, it is far from being usable now. The numpy.f2py and g3 f2py
are completely different software. The changeset was fixing
a bug in numpy.f2py, it has nothing to do with g3 f2py.
