I apologise for not keeping the list up to date with the progress on
this front.  The patch is such a great contribution that I wanted it
to become part of NumPy for 1.2b3.  The idea was to merge it and, once
done, report on the list.  As is, I am still busy fixing some bugs on
the Windows platform and integrating unit tests.  I did, however, get
Travis to review the patch beforehand, and we will keep reviewing the
changes made until 1.2b3 goes out.  The patch does not influence
current NumPy behaviour in any way -- it simply provides hooks for
general ufuncs, which can be implemented in the future.

Thanks for your concern,
