Component:  numpy.core   |      Version:  none

Comment (by bsouthey):

 I would add that both float32 and float128 are currently inconsistent with
 float and float64 on Linux x86_64 Python 2.5.1 with NumPy 1.0.5.dev4961:
 import numpy
 print numpy.__version__
 print 'numpy Float32 : ', numpy.float32('1.2345')
 print 'numpy Float128: ', numpy.float128('1.2345')

 Float32 failed with:
 ValueError : setting an array element with a sequence.

 Float128 failed with:
 TypeError : a float is required
