Note that I'm currently discussing a GSoC project in the Cython camp on 
Fortran integration with a promising student (with me as mentor). One 
possibility we're looking at is using f2py for parsing and Cython as the 
backend/output format. The aim would be to have a more transparent 
Cython/Fortran experience without having to go through a Python layer.

I'll get back to the NumPy list in a day or two when we have discussed 
the road we want to take a bit more.
