I'm still concerned about the massive amounts of C code, most of which
could be expressed way more compact in Python code. Walter convinced
me that this (the aspect that I picked in a discussion) does have a
real performance impact for real data, so I guess I have to live with

Because of the size, I'm sure there are still bugs in it. I couldn't
spot any by inspection, so I think the patch is ready to be installed.
