If there is a python version already (to serve as a reference), I
don't think it would be a big problem to include cython source.

Yes, that's already how it is done for numpy.random.mtrand. Cython is
not yet packaged by so many distributions, so depending on it for
building scipy is a bit premature IMHO.
