Right, but for each function that requires writing two wrappers, one in 
Fortran and a second one in cython.  Even though they are very simple, 
this would be cumbersome for a library with more than a few functions. 
Therefore I think there is still a place for f2py and f90wrap, and I am 
happy to see development continuing at least on the latter.
