John and I are in agreement here.   The issue has remained somebody 
stepping up and doing the conversions (and fielding the questions and 
the resulting discussion) for the various routines that probably ought 
to go into NumPy.

This would be a great place to get involved if there is a lurker looking 
for a project.
