#1551: Deprecate old Numeric type codes
 Reporter:  pv                 |       Owner:  somebody
     Type:  enhancement        |      Status:  new     
 Priority:  normal             |   Milestone:  2.0.0   
Component:  numpy.core         |     Version:          
 Keywords:  Numeric type code  |  
 The old Numeric-style type codes ('Float8', 'Complex32', ...) should
 probably be deprecated; at least for complex numbers they are confusing:
 >>> np.array([0], dtype='Complex32')
 array([ 0.+0.j], dtype=complex64)
