I've been mucking with the C-API lately and whenever that happens

envisioned. These changes will be for the better and should be the last
ones for awhile. I try to change the version number whenever I alter
the C-API, so new version number means new C-API.
After the records module is ported (and improved IMHO), the C-API
changes will settle down. Then, the only changes I can forsee in the
future are additions to ease the porting of numarray extensions like
nd_image and PyTables.
I'd love it if somebody started thinking about a good way to ease the
