Not yet.   The transition approach is to use the compatibility layer 
first by running oldnumeric.alter_code1.py and then running 
alter_code2.py which will take you from the compatibility layer to NumPy 
(but alter_code2 is not completed yet).

The description of what these codes do is in the latest version of the 
second chapter of my book (which is part of the preview chapters that 
are available on the web).
