FWIW: I can relatively easy (batch script) build numpy from github and
run the test suites of many packages available at
<http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/> against it.
For example at
are the test results of assimulo, bitarray, bottleneck, h5py,
matplotlib, numexpr, pandas, pygame, scipy, skimage, sklearn,
statsmodels, and pytables, built against numpy-1.6.x and run against
numpy-1.7.0.dev-66bd39f on win-amd64-py2.7.
