not on Windows, anyway -- for the most part, people use easy_install
with vitualenv. Compiling stuff on Windows is a big 'ol pain in the
^%^&$$, and remarkably few people do it. easy_install is quite capable
of installing binary packages (except Universal ones on OS_X...), it
would be nice if numpy supported it.

It would still only work if the user was properly set up to compile
python extensions -- not a very common occurrence.
