Let me just mention that I am worried about the removal of weave:
a substantial amount of code developed in our group over the years
uses weave. Porting this to cython seems not trivial,
in particular, because many of the original authors
(diploma students, PhD students, ...) have left academia by now.

Well, as porting weave to Python 3 is way out of my capabilities,
this is just a comment in the hope that someone could give this a try
(if at some point testing would be needed, I could try to help,
of course).

Best, Arnd
