Well, I think that having a 64 bit native build of numpy/scipy using an
efficient and non-commercial licensed BLAS/Lapack (i.e. not Intel MKL)
can't be a bad thing :)

It might be possible to build python [2.5|2.6|3.0] with MinGW itself to
avoid the runtime issue. At least Python 2.4 had problems when building
it with MinGW and I never investigated if 2.5.x had fixed those issues.
