Yes, this is correct. It is impossible to create a numpy 1.4.x which
is compatible with the *existing* scipy binary, because several
structures have been growing (not only because of datetime).

The cython changes have already been incorporated in scipy 0.7.x
branch, so in the end, what should be done is a new 0.7.2 scipy binary
built against numpy 1.3.0, which will then be compatible with both
numpy 1.3 and 1.4 binaries,
