Running on OS X 10.4 , testing with 'import numpy; numpy.test()'

Ran 1726 tests in 7.544s


Also, I'm pleased to see that most of my patches for
improved startup performance were applied.

Here are timings for 1.2.0rc2

[josiah:~] dalke% time python -c 'import os'
0.014u 0.029s 0:00.04 75.0%     0+0k 0+1io 0pf+0w
[josiah:~] dalke% time python -c 'import numpy'
0.067u 0.123s 0:00.19 94.7%     0+0k 0+9io 0pf+0w

Only 0.15s extra startup time.  Vs. 0.34 seconds with 1.1.0:

(sudo rm .../numpy; cd 1.1.0; setup.py install)

[josiah:~] dalke% time python -c 'import os'
0.014u 0.028s 0:00.04 75.0%     0+0k 0+0io 0pf+0w
[josiah:~] dalke% time python -c 'import numpy'
0.160u 0.227s 0:00.38 100.0%    0+0k 0+0io 0pf+0w

About twice as fast.  Programs that ran in under a second
should now be at least 30% faster.  :)
