Yes, but does the code have the same license as NumPy?  As I work for a software company, where I help with the scripting interface, I must make sure everything I use is cited and has the appropriate license.

Indeed.  You may want to take a look at npfile, the new IO module in
scipy written by Matthew Brett (you don't have to install the whole
scipy to use it, just grab the file).
