The current policy is to generate the C sources and check them in too
so that downstream builders don't have a dependency on Cython, only
people who are actually modifying those Cython sources. So it's just a
matter of making sure that scipy developers are on the same page. I
have no objection. I would probably make a comment at the top of the
file to specify that it requires Cython 0.16.
