Great stuff! Thanks!
BTW: my impression was that much of the Numeric C code is
generated by python code generators. Is this (still) true? If so, are the
generators available? Might make a C-implementation of a
scatter-gather (or alternative) C level array easier.
(looking at umathmodule with SBYTE_greater, LONG_greater, ...
it looks suspiciously like an expanded macro...)
