While doing tests on the new NumPy 1.6 code, I'm seeing that the 
compiled code with NumPy 1.5 no longer works with 1.6.  Here it is the 
problem:

$ PYTHONPATH=. python tables/tests/test_all.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "tables/tests/test_all.py", line 13, in <module>
    import tables
  File "/home/faltet/PyTables/pytables/trunk/tables/__init__.py", line 
63, in <module>
    from tables.utilsExtension import getPyTablesVersion, getHDF5Version
  File "definitions.pxd", line 138, in init tables.utilsExtension 
(tables/utilsExtension.c:9238)
ValueError: numpy.dtype has the wrong size, try recompiling

I've seen the same issue when NumPy jumped from 1.3.x to 1.4.1, forcing 
all the packages depending on NumPy to be recompiled to work with 1.4.1 
and higher.  Do we really want to repeat the experience with 1.5.x --> 
1.6.x?
