There was a feeling that, at least, integration should wait until the 
next point release. There was also some concern about maintenance of my 
handwritten wrappers as opposed to f2py wrappers. I think I know how to 
do the right thing with regard to an f2py wrapper of it now, so when I 
get a free weekend[1], I'll make an attempt. Licensing isn't a problem: 
everything is public domain. Oh, and it needs unittests. The ad-hoc 
tests I have aren't going to cut it.

[1] To be fair, most of my weekends actually *are* free, but I live next 
to the beach now, and I have my priorities.  :-)
