Cythonize and add backslash logic to "scipy.linalg.solve"
I've finally managed to draft a PR  for the functionality given in the title (see also "Algorithms" section of ). It is almost halfway done but the gist is already in place.
I'm posting this to both NumPy and SciPy lists since I think it is important enough to get feedback from all parties involved.The particular detail I need to be taught is the Cython parts and fleshing out anti-patterns and code smells. Probably NumPy folks are better equipped to spot the C related issues. There is this ILP64 issue that I am aware of which would cause a bit of trouble and I would appreciate it if we can tackle it at this early stage.
