I agree.  Lots of people do seem to be trying out numpy.  I use it  
for all new code I develop, and I have converted over a bunch of  
older SciPy stuff that uses both the python and C APIs, including  
ppgplot for plotting.  I also heard from the PyFITS developers that  
an alpha release based on numpy is coming very soon.
