Somehow the two of us forgot to mention that Maciek (and anyone who
got too close to him and was roped in to help) worked on simplifying
the interface for declaring external functions.  Before this, a task
as simple as adding support for say "os.dup" involved editing roughly
42 files, and then wouldn't work because you forget the 43rd.  Now
there is a nice helper function that allows all the details to be in
just one file, as seen in pypy/rpython/module/ll_os.py.
