[Numpy-discussion] What happened to numpy.testing.Tester ?

Hi all,

My machine: Mac dual G5, OSX 10.5.4, Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Feb 22  
2008, 07:57:53), numpy 1.1.1

After considerable agony, I succeeded in building and installing scipy  
from SVN, only to be told upon importing it:

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
   File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/ 
python2.5/site-packages/scipy/__init__.py", line 86, in <module>
     from numpy.testing import Tester
ImportError: cannot import name Tester

A message here from Alan McIntyre on June 20, said, in part:  
"NoseTester will still be made available as numpy.testing.Tester."

It appears that each of the seemingly innumerable __init__.py files  
throughout the scipy sources calls for numpy.testing.Tester.

Should I ask over on the scipy list as well?  Is there some trivial  
change that will fake out either numpy or scipy into thinking all is
