Nothing should be lost.  I just renamed the files (e.g. from fblas to fblas2) 
so that they could be installed along with linalg.  Otherwise distutils 
writes linalg2/fblas over linalg/fblas  or vice-versa depending on which one 
was installed first.

It's possible I forgot to commit a file.   For example, do the fblas.pyf (now 
fblas2.pyf) files need to be committed or are they automatically generated 
from the generic_fblas.pyf files?

Can you be more specific about what you think is "lost."
