Hi Pierre,

I"m ccing Bob on this, he's the main developper for cdms2 package. At 
this point I think Travis original suggestion was the best. We should 
leave it like it was for 1.0.5 There's a lot of changes to do in order 
to get the backward compatibility going. And I feel it should wait until 
1.1. I don't feel comfortable doing all these changes and releasing our 
software like this. It's a major change and it needs to be tested for a 
while.  OUr users are massively hammering the MA and rely on it so much. 
Although I do see the usefulness of the new ma and at term I believe it 
has major merits to be used instead of oldnumeric.ma.

Your thoughts?
