There were some discussion about pushing 1.4.0 'early', but instead, I
think we let it slipped - one consequence is that there will be enough
time for 1.4.0 to be released with proper AMD64 support on windows.
The real issue is not numpy per-se, but making scipy work on top of
numpy in 64 bits mode. It is hard to give an exact date as to when those
issues will be fixed, but it is being worked on.
