No.

I would like to, but I am not sure to find the time. I am not in a  
hurry either, as Numeric continues to work fine.

Lack of time. Some of the changes from Numeric are subtle and require  
a careful analysis of the code, and then careful testing. For big  
applications, that's a lot of work. There are also modules (I am  
thinking of RNG) that have been replaced by something completely  
different that needs to be evaluated first.
