Hi David,

If numpy 1.3.0 is available April 1, will compatible versions of scipy 
binaries also be available then? In other words, if numpy 1.3.0 is available 
for Python 2.6 on Windows XP on April 1, will a scipy 0.7.x binary that works 
on the same platform be available?

If so, that is extremely good news, for I can finally get rid of lots of hacks 
(specifically to work around MSVC 7.1 deficiencies) in my code. MSVC 9.0 (used 
to build python 2.6) will, hopefully, be a little better.
