it got lost in the noise, and like Charles I thought the aim was to produce
a 1.4.x binary compatible with what's out there now. This is also what you
said on Wednesday:

So here is how I see things in the near future for release:
- compile a simple binary installer for mac os x and windows (no need
for doc or multiple archs) from 1.4.x
- test this with the scipy binary out there (running the full test
suites), ideally other well known packages as well (matplotlib,
pytables, etc...).

So now this seems to be impossible. I'm not so sure then we're not confusing
even more confusing with yet another incompatible binary...

Cheers,
Ralf
