Comment (by rkern):

 Well, we don't use numpy.pkgload anymore inside numpy. The only thing
 stopping us from removing it entirely is backwards compatibility for
 others who might be using it for some reason. Its only real public
 interface is {{{__call__()}}}, so I wouldn't feel too bad with simply
 replacing it with a function that made a {{{PackageLoader}}} instance at
 the time of the request rather than on-import.

 I'd also slate it for complete removal in 1.1.
