I'd really love it. More generally, I'd really be interested in having
all the numpy function (including the linalg ones) work with single
precision, as I my main limitation on the work I am doing right now is
memory. I did have a quick look, and it seemed to me that this was not
always possible, due to the underlying fortran libraries.
