This release is a significant milestone, as it is able to build two

The main new features are:
   - New hooks to modify, override compilation options on a per
extension basis (e.g. build one extension with optimized flags and
another one without).
   - Recursive package description support to split big packages
descriptions into several files

to avoid using __file__ without depending on complex tools ala,
   - Improved documentation
   - Some work toward python 3 support (does not work yet for complex packages)
