You may want to have a look at PyTables (http://pytables.sourceforge.net).
It's designed to be used in scenarios similar to that you are exposing.
It supports Numeric objects and although columns in tables are not
automatically converted to Numeric o numarray objects, you can build them on
the flight easily using its powerful selection capabilities.
It uses HDF5 (http://hdf.ncsa.uiuc.edu/HDF5/) format to save its data, so you
can read PyTables files in a variety of languages and platforms.
