[Cython] History of SWIG and applicability to Cython

I've been working on CWrap in my spare time.
The goal is to be SWIG for Cython.
It currently outputs pxd files for the headers of a C library. It's not
mature, but it works. (It can output pxd files for the whole of Intel's IPP
and MKL libraries). I hope to eventually output pyx implementation files as
It currently uses gccxml, but I hope to make the switch to Clang.
We've been talking amongst ourselves @ enthought to lobby you guys
eventually to merge it with Cython main, but I just haven't had the
bandwidth to get it up to that point.
