DONE - 'include' statement for including other Pyrex files.

DONE - Add command line option for specifying name of generated C file.

Semicolon-separated statement lists.

Optional semicolons after C declarations.

Multiple C declarations on one line?

Check for lack of return with value in non-void C functions?

Allow 'pass' in struct/union/enum definition.

Windows __fooblarg function declaration things.

Generate type, var and func declarations in the same order that
they appear in the source file.

Provide a way of declaring a C function as returning a
borrowed Python reference.

Provide a way of specifying whether a Python object obtained
by casting a pointer should be treated as a new reference
or not.

Optimize integer for-loops.

Make sizeof() take types as well as variables.

Allow "unsigned" to be used alone as a type name.

Allow duplicate declarations, at least in extern-from.

Do something about installing proper version of pyrexc
script according to platform in setup.py.

DONE - Add "-o filename" command line option to unix/dos versions.

Recognise #line directives?

Catch floating point exceptions?

Check that forward-declared non-external extension types 
are defined.

Generate type test when casting from one Python type
to another.

Generate a Pyrex include file for public declarations
as well as a C one.

Syntax for defining indefinite-sized int & float types.

Allow ranges of exception values.

Support "complex double" and "complex float"?

Allow module-level Python variables to be declared extern.

Consider:
>cdef extern from "foo.h":
>    int dosomething() except -1 raise MyException

Properties for Python types.

DONE - Properties for extension types.

Find a way to make classmethod and staticmethod work better.

Do something about external C functions declared as returning
const * types?

Use PyString_FromStringAndSize for string literals?

DONE - C functions as methods of extension types.

What to do about __name__ etc. attributes of a module (they are
currently assumed to be built-in names).

Use PyDict_GetItem etc. on module & builtins dicts for speed.

Intern all string literals used as Python strings?
[Koshy <jkoshy@freebsd.org>]

Make extension types weak-referenceable.
[Matthias Baas <baas@ira.uka.de>]

Make 'pass' work in the body of an extern-from struct
or union.

Disallow a filename which results in an illegal identifier when
used as a module name.

Use ctypedef names.

Provide an easy way of exposing a set of enum values as Python names.
[John J Lee <jjl@pobox.com>]

Prevent user from returning a value from special methods that
return an error indicator only.

Use PyObject_TypeCheck instead of PyObject_IsInstance?
