Ok. If the C capsule stuff is still in flux, it may just be removed from 
the public header - I don't think we will need it anywhere in scipy.

I would also prefer a new name, instead of macro redefinition, but I can 
do it. The header would not be part of the public API proper anyway (I 
will put it somewhere else than numpy/include), it should never be 
pulled implicitly in when including one of the .h in numpy/include.
