Sigh.  Unfortunately on the two Linux releases I'm using (Ubuntu and 
Fedora Core 4), pygtk2 contains a dependency on Numeric and therefore 
you're more-or-less forced to install the distros' version, currently at 
23.8.  I know that's not up to you to fix, Travis!  But, hypothetically, 
you're telling me that if I did forcibly install Numeric and numarray 
from current CVS, that they would play nice with the new scipy core and 
with matplotlib?
