Quoting me:

There are still errors in the self-tests using numarray so this is
mostly a curiosity announcement and head's up to be on the lookout for
other problems.  If you're curious, get numarray from CVS on source
forge first.


I didn't mean to imply that the numarray port of SciPy is finished,
merely that the port of scipy_base to numarray has been moved to the
head of CVS;  scipy_base.test() does AFIK complete w/o errors.
scipy.test() had ~70 errors the last time I looked and it will likely
take at least a few weeks to straighten them out.  Beyond that, major
scipy facilities remain to be ported such as weave and scipy_distutils.
Beyond that,  some of the scipy functions need to be "re-wrapped" using
the numarray UFunc API.
