It does, which is why I wanted to bring it up here.

Well, the idea is that this behavior is the correct one for all packages.
It calls attention to those RuntimeWarnings, which may only occur on
certain platforms. If they're legitimate, you silence them in the test
suite of that package. If not, you fix them. Would you agree with that? Or
would you prefer to just ignore DeprecationWarnings and/or RuntimeWarnings
in skimage for example?

Note that the changed behavior would only be visible for people running
numpy master.
