Numpy is great : I can see several IDL/matlab projects switching to numpy :)
However, it would be soooo nice to be able to put some OpenMP into the 
numpy code.

It would be nice to be able to be able to use several CPU using the 
numpy syntax ie A=sqrt(B).

Ok, we can use some inline C/C++ code but it is not so easy.
Ok, we can split the data over several python executables (one per CPU) 
but A=sqrt(B) is so simple...

numpy + recent gcc with OpenMP  --> :) ?
Any comments ?
