The benefit is a bit similar to what was obtained with MPFIT: it's
easier to add new features, such as bounds for the variables. Also, as
the slow parts are in Cython, it should also be faster. The new features
are still TODO, but I guess e.g. duplicating what was done in MPFIT
should not be very difficult.
