[Numpy-discussion] Making a minimalist NumPy

NumPy is included in the OLPC operating system, which is very constrained in
space. Therefore, it would be nice to remove some subpackages to save a few
megabytes. For example, the system does not include any Fortran code or
compiler, so f2py (3.6 MB) seems superfluous. I also think the distutils
subpackage (1.9M) is probably not necessary. Therefore, I have two questions.
1. Which packages do you think are necessary to have a functioning NumPy?
2. What is the easiest way to make (or get) a minimal NumPy installation? For
example, would the scons/autoconf branch make this easier?
