As A.M. Archibald suggested, you can use list comprehension:
N.array([(a,b,c,d,) for (a,b,c,d) in yourlist], dtype=yourdesc)


N.fromiter(((a,b,c,d) for (a,b,c,d,) in yourlist), dtype=yourdesc)

Would you mind trying that, and let us know which one works best ? That could 
be put on the wiki somewhere...
