The easiest way to build some 'hints' for those packaging tools that use
modulefinder is to create a silly function that imports everything
belonging to the package:
Note that it will NOT work to write this:
because 'if 0' blocks are optimized away completely by the Python
This should be in numarray's __init__.py file, probably.
