This is not quite accurate.  Eric has spent time recently, in fact on 
updating and fixing the weave type converters.   I don't know of plans 
to support 'O' types, but I don't believe it would be difficult with 
what I know about it.

There has also been talk of merging f2py and weave together into a 
larger compiled-code library and/or subsuming weave into f2py (depending 
on who does what work...)

But, absolutely, you have to either convince someone to work on it, or 
dig in and do it yourself.
