It seems that it will be quite difficult to fix the issue without
removing something (I tried to use datetime as user types, but this
opened a can of worms), so I am (quite reluctantly ) coming to the
conclusion we should just bite the bullet and change the ABI number (so
that importing anything will fail instead of crashing randomly).
Something like numpy 220.127.116.11, which would just have a different ABI
number than 1.4.0, without anything else.
