There is a reimplemenation of Numeric that we are doing that does
support unsigned ints (Unsigned Int8, Unsigned Int16 for now).
The project is not mature, but a lot of basic cabability exists
now. You'll have to look it over to judge if it is usable
for you now. The new version is called numarray
( http://stsdas.stsci.edu/numarray )
(btw, we acquire data from CCD cameras as well ;-)
