I think this came about as a result of some discussion. This, I believe:

Yes, the warning is strongly worded -- especially as the support
for PEP 3118 will not arrive before Numpy 1.5.0, and I don't see any
reason why we would be removing support for the array interface.

Perhaps Py3 is a different ball game, but even there, there is no real
reason to remove the support, so I don't think we should do it.
