[Numpy-discussion] numpy.distutils quirk

I have now spent several hours hunting down a major slowdown of my code caused 
(apparently) by using config.add_library() for a reusable part of C source 
files instead of just config.add_extension().

The reason of the slowdown was different, but hard to discern, naming of 
options and silent ignoring of non-existing ones:

add_library() : extra_compiler_args
add_extension() : extra_compile_args

Other build keys used for the same purpose also differ.

A bug to be reported, or is this going to be solved by going bento?
