I took a quick look at symeig... its .pyf file uses a bit different
"style" compared to what's in linalg/generic_flapack.pyf and so simple
copy&paste may not be appropriate. I think I'll create signatures
for syevr, heevr, sygv, hegv, sygvd, hegvd, sygvx, hegvx myself
and copy the test suite from symeig if that's alright with you.
