The PyCapsule transition is done, but needs some cleanup. I'm thinking about
the best approach to the latter. I put some functions in compat_py3k.h that
are drop in replacements for our needs, but they hide the improved error
handling of PyCapsule. I'm thinking a better approach might be to use the
replacement functions to bring the error support of PyCObject closer to
PyCapsule. Because the current fix is a bunch of #ifdefs in the code the
substitution could be made bit by bit, rewriting the surrounding code to
support the new error handling.

f2py still needs fixing.
