Yeah. I think this is the case for PyTables. However, PyTables case should be 
similar to matplotlib: it needs so many features of NumPy that it is just 
conceivable it can live with just an implementation of the array interface.

In any case, I think that if the PEP has success, it would suppose an 
extraordinary leap towards efficient data interchange in applications that 
doesn't need (or are reluctant to include) NumPy for their normal operation.
