Me too. I was close to posing a note today saying it was fine, but then
I sat down with a developer I'm working with, and he happened to mention
that he had rebuilt something or other to accommodate the numpy ABI

Maybe it should have been called 1.5, but what's the difference, really?

it's not just about datetime, but also a structure for making other
custom data types -- wasn't someone working on a fixed-point type, for
