Everything related to name mangling can be handled by 
distutils/numscons, so this is not an issue (I am ready to help if 
necessary on that side).

I don't really know the assumptions made by f2py otherwise: is it 
prevalent for most fortran compilers to pass most things by reference ? 
g77 uses the f2c convention I believe, but I don't know much about other 
compilers, especially proprietary ones,

cheers,

David
