Peter, the original author, has said (for reasons that were not entirely 
clear) that he will not be supporting  the numpy version (or eventually 
the numarray version, either --- I think he's planning on writing some 
other library-based solution). 

So, what we have in SciPy is "the official" home for the numpy version 
of his package.
