To remove numeric from my system I'd have to remove 34 packages. Some
of the ones I use a lot:

gedit
meld
nautilus
matplotlib
rhythmbox
gnome-terminal

What kind of matrix computations do these programs need?

I'm surprised that so many packages use numeric. But that must mean
that numpy has a bright future.
