Great to hear that f2py is being developed so actively.
Fortran 90 has interface blocks that allow the calling routine to pick
up whichever of a set of routines has the appropriate datatype. So one
has foo_real32,foo_real64 etc held within the interface block, but
calling foo will automatically choose the correct routine.
I don't know whether it's possible to make this work with f2py, but it
would be very useful if it could be.
