If it would take a GSoC to make it up to work, it may be time better
spent on improving fwrap.

Maybe Pearu would have some ideas, but the problem I see with f2py
today is that it is pretty much Pearu's work only, and given that the
code has a relatively low unit test suite, the code is not that easy
to dive in for someone else.
