How much code is this?

I always just did the conversion by hand (with search and replace, of 
course!) -- it was never a big deal. It gave me the opportunity to tweak 
the code to ways that work better in numpy anyway.

Unless you've got a LOT of code to do, I'd just change "Numeric" to 
"numpy" and start testing.

Or run the conversion script, then test -- but I'd look at a diff too, 
just to make sure you understand what the script did.
