There may be a misunderstanding: I would not mind distributing something
without optimized BLAS. Not using atlas at all would be easier for me,
but I think some people were against that when we discussed the matter
some time ago. But I think it would be confusing to have an optimized
numpy from .exe and an unoptimized numpy from eggs on the same machine.
I am afraid we would have people complaining about this instead of
complaining about the lack of eggs.
