Would some contribution help ? Or is distutils such a beast that working 
together on it would be counter productive ? The things I had in mind were:
    - add the possibility to build shared libraries usable by ctypes (I 
just have a problem to start: I do not know how to add a new command to 
    - provides an interface to be able to know how numpy/scipy was 
configured (for example: is numpy compiled with ATLAS, Apple perf 
libraries, GOTO, fftw, etc...)
    - add the possibility to build several object files differently (one 
of your goal if I remember correctly)
