I personally think that this is a change which should be carefully
planned. Typically, I would not think about doing it before say the
1.1 release of numpy (that is, having several months at least to test
things and let people get used to it).

My email should really be understood as a proposal for a roadmap, and
how to proceed (having mirrors in bzr, hg, etc... testing with an
experimental trac which would run in parrallel with the main one,
etc...).

cheers,

David
