First, that would currently not be possible, as NumPy does not support 
Py3k. Second, the easiest way to port NumPy to Py3k is Cython, which 
would prevent adoption in the Python standard library. At least they 
have to change their current policy. Also with NumPy in the standard 
library, any modification to NumPy would require a PEP.

But Python should have a PEP 3118 compliant buffer object in the 
standard library, which NumPy could subclass.
