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
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.
