I've applied the suggestions made in this thread.

If no one objects, here's what I am going to do now:

I'll merge this change in the trunk, (I'll drop the branch changesets
in favor of one single, clean changeset) and start to work on the
corresponding doc, so more people will be able to give some feedback
on the APIs once the second 2.7 alpha is out.

Then, in a second step, I'll work on the removal of the Makefile and
pyconfig.h dependencies by adding a _synconfig.py file as suggested
earlier, that will be created during the build process.
