In complete ignorance of how much work it would be to get
weave to python3.3, I can only add an end-users perspective:
we have a lot of code for our research projects which uses weave.
Only few people in our group started using cython recently,
so I don't see that we will move the well-used and tested
code over to cython in the near future....

Best, Arnd
