Because scipy needs code I would pull out from numpy. You can build
numpy for amd64 by yourself at the moment, BTW. I am afraid that
distributing one numpy binary now would only makes things more confusing
when scipy for amd64 will be out, as it will not work with this numpy,
but only with a later one.
