For a 1.0 release of numpy:

In terms of features.  The only thing I see as necessary is that array 
scalars have their own math defined so that they don't go through the 
full ufunc machinery.   This is probably about 20-40 hours of work.

I would also like to see a numcompat module that allows numarray users 
to compile their C-extensions with a simple include file change.   Also, 
a convert_numarraycode.py module would be useful for converting Python 
code.

Mostly, though, I would like to see more people using NumPy in different 
circumstances so that we get the bugs worked out and needed C-API 
changes before going to 1.0.   This is the process that may take several 
months as I see it.
