#2040: f2py does not treat quad precision real/complex

 Priority:  normal            |   Milestone:  Unscheduled
Component:  Other             |     Version:  1.6.1

 As is visible from this code:

 https://github.com/numpy/numpy/blob/master/numpy/f2py/capi_maps.py#L35

 f2py incorrectly maps quad precision real/complex down to their real-
 valued counterparts, leading to crashes and/or incorrect data in user
 applications. Compiler support for quad in icc and gcc (both C- and
 Fortran-side) is decent nowadays, so there's little reason to do this,
 IMO. If this has a chance of getting in, I'd try to provide a patch.
