This needs further investigation. Haven't got the source (nor the time) to 
look at it.

These are easy to fix by following the advice of the error message: replace 
"__new__" by "__cinit__".

Cython 0.14.1 has finally changed a long-standing warning into an error 
here because people got bitten more than once when they ignored the warning.

Fix: 'bool' -> 'bint'

This is a semantic change in Cython 0.14: 'bool' is no longer available by 
default, simply because it doesn't make sense to use it and it's ambiguous 
(C++ has it's own bool, for example).
