```Thanks Paul,  I will try it out.  That at least gives me some
direction.  I've been pouring over the Numpy manual, but there are so
many different functions!  I would like to try to write an extension
that includes some of these FEM routines, but thats for later.

BTW, at work I have to use Windows NT, but I've grown to love the
calldll/DynWin extension.  You can even interact with the windows kernel
with that one.   Rob.
