Comment(by rgommers):

 So outcome of the mailing list discussion: we'd like to deprecate and
 remove NPY_CHAR, since it's not a real numpy type.  Needs checking with
 STSCI first though. It can't easily be fixed, and we'd rather not increase
 the ABI number for this (we should only do that for numpy 2.0).

 As for the Debian issue, is it possible to force a recompile without
 bumping the ABI number for now? Ideally Scientific should be fixed to not
 use NPY_CHAR, but AFAIK it's unmaintained, which presents a problem....
