Yes, please. The current system does seem to work for at least some of 
us.  And, if I understand the thread in the scipy mailing list, it's not 
actually clear that there's a bug, as opposed to incompatible fortran 
ABIs (which doesn't seem like a bug to me).

But I guess the most important thing would be that it can be used with 
apple or python.org Python builds (my reading of some of the suggestions 
would be requiring one of homebrew/fink/macports), preferably 
out-of-the-box -- even if that meant restricting to prebuilt binaries. 
Being able to run non-obscure installers (i.e., from the main python.org 
and scipy.org sites) for Python + numpy + scipy + matplotlib and get 
optimized versions would be sufficient.
