I think the concern with that is manpower: it effectively requires
maintaining two complete projects alive in parallel.  As far as I
know, a number projects that used to have that model have backed off
(the linux kernel included) to better enable a limited team to focus
on development.  I'm skeptical that numpy has the manpower to sustain
that approach.

Cheers,
