We may have a student this summer that can work on it as a project.

In the meantime, I rewrote ndimage.measurements in pure python/numpy.
I'm still testing its speed, but I think it will provide a good base
for a cython version.  I've simplified the code quite a bit.
Everything goes through a single labeled_reduce function, which
handles all the label/index interactions without needing any type

The changes are available via git at:
