Just to make it very clear:  numarray-0.4 and up require Python-2.2 or 
higher.  

Up until numarray-0.4 (released in November),  that was not the case, 
and numarray ran (and was tested!) on Python-2.0 and higher.

The desire to increase C-level Numeric compatability and to improve 
simple indexing speed led us to a C baseclass, which is only supported 
in Python-2.2 and  up.
