Concerning numpy.distutils, is anyone working on improving it ? There 
was some work started, but I have not seen any news on this front: am I 
missing something ? I would really like to have the possibility to 
compile custom extensions to be used through ctypes, and didn't go very 
far just by myself, unfortunately (understanding distutils is not 
trivial, to say the least).
