Do you have plans to continue to maintain it though?

One other things I forgot to mention.  I first tried the head of your
git repo and numpy complained that the version of numscons (0.10) was
too *old*.  It wanted the version to be greater than somehting like
0.9.1, and clearly it was, so it looks like there is a bug in the
numscons version parsing in numpy.distutils.

OK, I will have a look at this further to see what the cause is.

Thanks for a great package that solve a really painful set of issues!
