It seems that what I advertised before as Pyrex 0.3.1
was the wrong version. The correct one should be there
now!

> Pyrex 0.3.1 is now available:
> 
>    http://www.cosc.canterbury.ac.nz/~greg/python/Pyrex/
> 
> Some fairly major problems with the new extension
> types facility have been fixed.
> 
> There are also some new features:
> 
>   -  Default argument values, * and ** arguments are
>      now supported in Pyrex-defined Python functions.
> 
>   -  External C functions with variable argument
>      lists can be declared and called.
> 
>   -  Full C type declaration syntax now supported,
>      including pointer-to-function types.
> 
>   -  More special methods for extension types:
>      __delitem__, __delslice__, __getattr__,
>      __setattr__, __delattr__
> 
>   -  ctypedef statement.
> 
>   -  String literal handling improved (triple
>      quoted strings, escape sequences in strings
>      should now work).
> 
>   -  Hex, octal and imaginary literals.
> 
>   -  Docstrings.
> 
> What is Pyrex?
> --------------
> 
> Pyrex is a new language for writing Python extension modules.
> It lets you freely mix operations on Python and C data, with
> all Python reference counting and error checking handled
> automatically.
