Pauli will have to weigh in here, but I think it is pretty stable and has
been for a while. The only thing I'm thinking of changing are the PyCapsule
compatibility functions; instead of having them downgrade PyCapsule to
PyCObject like behaviour, go the other way. Going the other way requires
changes to the surrounding code to handle errors, which is why Numpy doesn't
use those functions at the moment.
