Great.   I would really like to get the discussion going.   In an  
ideal world we can finish any kind of significant re-factoring in time  
for SciPy this year.    It actually feels like the kind of thing that  
can motivate NumPy 2.0 a bit better.

It sounds to me like nobody will be opposed as long as there is  
continuity to the project and current code still works without  
disruption (i.e. the current C-API for Python extensions is available).

I am interested in re-factoring in such a way to create minimal impact  
on current NumPy C-API users, but improve maintainability going  
forward and the ability for other projects to use NumPy.
