If this works then it should be fine.  If it doesn't, however, then it 
would not be too big a deal to just move the old implementation over.   
In fact, I rather think it ought to be done anyway. 

The oldnumeric directory will be disappearing in 1.1, so it doesn't 
introduce any long-term burden and just makes 1.0.5 a bit more robust.
