If it helps any, I'm not a Cython proponent, just a student that (1)
wanted to work on some numerical software and (2) needed some income
over the summer, so I proposed to do some of the items listed on the
NumPy/SciPy wish lists, which happened to mention Cython. :)

If using Cython isn't acceptable to the SciPy/NumPy community at large
(i.e., if I'm going to work on something for 2-3 months that won't
ever be committed), then it would be nice to know that up front.  I
can either choose to use other tools, or do some work to help make
using Cython less of a pain.  Either way is fine with me, of course.
