Since 0.7.0rc2 is out, weave will be in 0.7.x.  We could deprecate
weave (and recommend cython?) in 0.8.x.  Simultaneous with the 0.8
release, we can move weave from the development trunk to its own
project.  Then weave can raise an error in 0.9.x and point users to
the standalone project and/or cython.  We could then remove all
references to weave in the 0.10.x release.
