[Cython] Willing to contribute

Hi everybody,

I've been a enthusiast Python programmer for 3 years now, and I've hailed 
Cython project with great interest. Now, I'm willing to contribute. I've would 
say I'm an quite an expert Python programmer and I've some-year-long 
experience with C, modern C++ and its cousin Java. Sidenote, I'm a student at 
Politecnico di Milano, Italy.

Everything started with trying to speed up a Mandelbrot generator, which 
heavily relies on complex numbers. Eventually I've found in "Mini Projects (or 
something similar)" wiki that C99 `complex' is still to be implemented. So, I 
decide to make a step further and try to hop into development.

I've would be grateful if a core developer could point me in the right 
direction concerning coding style, repositories, deadlines (I'm still a 
student, so I may have 'offline' days this winter) and other issues. I may 
start with something easy (`complex' implementation, or command line API 
restructuration), and I'd like someone from the team to discuss what I'll be 
implementing (ok, just for the first days), just to see if  "I'm doing it 
right" (TM) and, mostly, if I'm the right man or I'm just making you loose 
your time.

You can see an example of what I did in the past here: 
http://code.google.com/p/libsmth/ - for instance (still a WIP).

I really appreciate your work :)
