[SciPy-dev] Modernizing code

For both scipy_core and the full scipy, I would like to make these two
changes:

 * Make all classes new-style classes

 * Change malloc/free/etc. to their PyMem equivalents

The former is, I think, uncontroversial. The latter *may* have an effect
on performance, so I'm curious if it has already been considered.

If there's no objection, then I'll get started on cleaning things up as
soon as I can.
