I've updated and tested (but not uploaded) our num_util helper functions
(http://www.eos.ubc.ca/research/clouds/software/pythonlibs/num_util/num_util_release2)
for python 2.5.1, numpy 1.0.5.dev4731, boost_1_34_1, Centos 5.1 64bit on
Athlon64.  Anyone that's interested is welcome to contact me for a tarfile.
I plan to switch the underlying array object from 
boost::python::numeric::array
to Neal's numpy_array, but that's not likely to happen before April
