Maybe my English is broken, as I meant exactly the same as in Guido's
post: do not break API (C API here) while porting to py3k. Making the
NumPy C API robust to changes wo constantly breaking the ABI will
require heavy changes to C structures and how they are exposed to 3rd
parties. It is impossible to do without breaking the C API.
