[Cython] Vitja's CyFunction branch

My opinion is that we create a (short-lived) branch for the release, and continue development (ignoring the release) on master.

If CyFunction solves no problems that blocks a release, I am -1 on merging it into the release branch. But we shouldn't keep things in pull requests just because we're waiting for a release, it is better to use a dedicated release branch.

I see no problem if it passes the testsuite, and I need it for fused types (although admittedly I'm taking a vacation after this weekend)._____________________________________________
