Sure.  I'm trying to look at this more from the Clojure end.
Is it really better to start from scratch than to attempt
a contribution to NumPy that would make it useful to Clojure.
Given the amount of work that has gone into making NumPy
what it is, it seems a huge project for the Clojure people
to hope to produce anything comparable starting from scratch.

Thanks,
Alan
