Well, on my side, there's some doc to be updated, of course. Then, I'd  
like to put the rec_functions that were developed in matplotlib to  
manipulate recordarrays. I haven't started yet, might be able to do so  
before the end of the year (not much to do, just a clean up and some  
examples). And what should we do with the genloadtxt function ?

Will do in good time.
Thx again
