Yes. That's true. In the early days of F2PY the main task for it was to
generate <modulename>module.c. Currently generating <modulename>module.c
is only useful when debugging, or when one wants to use other building
tools (make, scons, jam,etc.) than scipy_distutils.
So, do you have any suggestions regarding -c and -h switches?
