There are 2 pending branches, _memview_rebase, which has support for
memoryviews, and fusedtypes. The former is ready for merge, it's
waiting to be reviewed. The fused types branch needs to subclass
CyFunction (it basically modified the old binding function). There was
also some duplicate functionality there, so I thought it'd be easier
and more convenient to use the utility code loading there.

Since it's not a strict dependency and it will be blocking progress, I
will try to find some time to get it merge-ready for master.

But no, it does cdef, cpdef and def methods, and it has some changes
to all function nodes (FuncdefNode, CFuncdefNode and DefNode). These
changes shouldn't be major though, but the logic in FusedFuncdefNode
does differentiate between all the different functions in order to
support them. Feel free to ask me about specifics any time.
