The main stumbling block in porting weave is the way Python I/O
was changed in Python 3, i.e., no FILE* pointers any more.
Also, unicode conversion maybe causes some issues.

So, the data type conversions are not completely straightforward
to port. Porting it is certainly possible, but requires more work
than other parts of Numpy and Scipy, so I dropped it at the time.
