Let me echo this. I'm not sure what all the recent discussion on the  
fixes has left this particular issue but I think there needs to be  
some way to deal with this (either a way to suppress the message or  
handle things differently). This kind of warning is not going to be  
helpful to those that download software that uses numpy. They won't  
know what it means and won't know what to do about it.
