Is there a difference between changing the C api and the Python API? I'd 
kind of expect that any C code is going to be broken more than Python 
code anyway, so maybe that's a distinction worth making.

Or maybe not -- I suppose the logic is that the transition of user code 
form 2->3 should be as easy as possible, so we don't want users to have 
to deal with Python changes, and numpy changes, and wxPython changes, 
and ??? all at once.
