I don't know what it would take, but I would LOVE it if NumPy used a
highly optimised BLAS wherever possible. I have no idea whether there is
a good BLAS available for every major platform that has a licence that
allows it to be included with NumPy, but if so, I think it should be
included. I know this is more effor than just including a generic one,
but having optimum performace "out of the box" would be a great thing.

just my $.02, which is worth about that, as I am in littel position to
help...
