I'm the one Travis mentioned earlier about working on this. I was planning on
diving into it this week, but it sounds like you may have some code already that
fits the requirements? If so, I would be available to help you with
porting/testing your code with numpy, or I can take what you have and build on
it in my numpy fork on github.
