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.
