yes, but that is just a rumour:), one should not expect that to
happen in near future. I think first we need g3 f2py.

they should certainly do that as extension generation tools
guarantee higher quality of the extension modules than writing
hundreds of extension modules by hand.

Thanks for the hints, they were very useful. I have registered
f2py.org and f2py.com domains and the redirections work
fine. This solves one problem: now one can advertise f2py via
www.f2py.com (or www.f2py.org) and it should be stable at
least for the next 10 years:).
