Is anyone suggesting we hold the whole release for this? I fnot, then
why would you say we shouldnt' put out a 64 bit Windows numpy binary
because we dont' ahve a matching Scipy one? folks that need Scipy will
have to find a way to built it themselves anyway, and folks that use
numpy without scipy would have a nice binary to use -- That seems like
value-added to me.

I like the "load them with ctypes" approach better, but I don't know
how much effort it would be to implement that.
I'm still not totally clear if there is an issue with buildings other
extensions tht rely on numpy/scipy -- can they be built with mingGW if
numpy/scipy were built with MSVC (Or any other compiler for that
