Re-compilation is necessary at some point. We have not required
recompilation for a long time now. Yes, it is a pain for
distribution, but those who don't want to re-compile can point people to
1.1.1 which will still work until they make a new release compiled
against the newer NumPy.
I would encourage people to make use of things like Python(x,y), EPD,
and SAGE for their distribution needs.
