[Cython] Py3k builds broken due to CPython changes

just a quick heads-up that the Py3k builds are completely broken since this
week-end because the internal CPython import mechanism changed. The most
visible effect for us is that Py2-style imports no longer work in Py3.3,
which, I guess, impacts the majority of existing Py2-style Cython code.
Only absolute and relative imports continue to work, import level "-1"
raises a ValueError.

I asked on python-dev to see what they think about this regression.


If they end up considering it the intended behaviour, we may have to
duplicate the original behaviour in one way or another to keep this working.
