Ah, I think you are mistaken, then - he referred to merging numpy and
scipy into python during his talk, not cython.

For the reason you gave, including numpy into python is not really on
the radar. It was tried unsuccessfully some time ago, and the PEP buffer
(3118 IIRC) is a much more low-level API to share "typed" buffer at the
C level. Hopefully, numpy will be built on top of this at some point.
Scipy is very unlikely IMHO - I doubt depending on fortran code would be
acceptable for python.
