I am insterested, and I think interest is growing thanks to the cloud 
computing fad, since a lot of this instrastructure is based on java 
(hadoop, hbase, cassandra to name a few). Being able to use numpy on top 
of those technologies would be extremely useful.

Now, I think reimplementing numpy from scratch is the wrong way if you 
want to be able to reuse existing code (scipy, etc...). There is a 
starting effort to refactor numpy to make it easier to port on new VM, 
and JVM would be an obvious candidate to test those things.

cheers,

David
