[Cython] Bug report: enumerate does not accept the "start" argument

Python's built-in function 'enumerate' has a lesser-known 2nd argument that
allows the start value of the enumeration to be set.  See the python docs

Cython 0.16 doesn't like it, and only allows one argument.

Here is a simple file to reproduce the failure:

for i in enumerate("abc", 1):
>     print i

And the resulting output complaint:

Error compiling Cython file:
> ------------------------------------------------------------
> ...
> for i in enumerate("abc", 1):
>                  ^
> ------------------------------------------------------------
> deploy/_working/_cython_test.pyx:1:18: enumerate() takes at most 1 argument

I have requested a trac login to file bugs like this, but the request is
pending (just sent).
