Boy, that code is *old*, it still uses Numeric ;) I don't think it can
really be considered a test suite, it needs lotsa love and it needs to get
installed. Anyway, f2py with py3k turns out to have string problems, and I
expect other type problems, so there is considerable work that needs to be
done to bring it up to snuff. Sounds like gsoc material. I'm not going to
worry about it any more until later.
