To be clear, what you're talking about is basically deleting these two packages:
  numpy.oldnumeric
  numpy.numarray
plus the compatibility C API in
  numpy/numarray/include
?

So this would only affect Python code which explicitly imported one of
those two packages (neither is imported by default), or C code which
did #include "numpy/numarray/..."?

(I'm not even sure how you would build such a C module, these headers
are distributed in a weird directory not accessible via
np.get_include(). So unless your build system does some special work
to access it, you can't even see these headers.)
