Thanks for the info - I was perhaps unclear, I'm waiting for an official
NumPy windows installers for Python 2.7, and agree we shouldn't
release binaries dependent on a self-compiled pre-release.

[The same applies to NumPy windows 64 bit installers, but from
talking to David C at EuroSciPy 2010 that will take a while due to
Fortran compiler issues for SciPy.]
