[SciPy-user] pre-release peek of compiler... and I need help with a name

Thanks Carl and others,

All would work. c would be short and sweet, but to many people use c as a
variable.  I think py2c is already taken by another project.

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone.  In the end, it came down to
'bicep' and 'weave', and 'weave' won.  Why?  It weaves snippets of C/C++
into Python, it wasn't taken, and I liked it.

So, I'll change the names, fix a few bugs that were found and hopefully
release within the week.

see ya,
eric
