the fortranobject is written in C, and would be ported to Cython.  also,
much of the python code could be ported to cython for some speedup and to
make the code 'python neutral'.  Cython would do the heavy lifting of
generating valid python (2 or 3) code when it is compiled, so the code
wouldn't have to be ported by hand when the rest of Numpy is ported.
