AFAIK C++ is still being considered for numpy in the future, and I think 
it is safe to say that a concrete implementation will be put forward for 
consideration at some point.

Just my own $0.02 regarding this issue: I am in favor of using C++ for 
numpy, I think it could confer various benefits. However, I am also in 
favor of explicitly deciding and documenting what subset of C++ features 
are acceptable for use within the numpy codebase.
