Has anyone considered using pyrex to implement numarray ?

I don't know a lot of the details but it seems to me that pyrex could
unify numarray's python/c source code mixture and smooth the transition
from python (==untyped pyrex) code to c (==typed pyrex) code. It would also
help clueless users like me understand, and perhaps contribute to, the codebase.

Also, the pyrex people have talked about applying this technique to the
standard python libraries, both for readability and speed.

ciao,

Simon.
