[Numpy-discussion] numpy git master requiring cython for build

numpy.random is largely built from a cython file. Up to know numpy git
included generated c sources for this one file.
It is troublesome to have merge 20k line changes for one line bugfixes,
so it is proposed to remove the generated sources from the master branch
in this PR:

Like in SciPy the sources will not be contained in git anymore but built
by the regular setup.py build when required.
Release source tarballs (sdist) will continue contain the generated
sources so users of stable release are not required to have cython

If you have any objects to this please speak up soon.
