I added the "string aliases" but didn't create new Python object
bindings. So you can currently say something like
but cannot yet say:
Good catch. I'll add those soon.

I think scipy_core is intended to add the best numarray-like features to

When scipy_core matures enough to replace numarray, numarray will be
phased out. If you rely on numarray, it is definitely worth your
time to keep an eye on scipy_core and switch when it meets your needs
