Well, I do use weave for some of my work and do try to keep the swig
and vtk spec code in shape but do not maintain the core.  I think Eric
would know more about the tests and why they fail.  However, I suspect
that he is submerged with too much work.

weave.test() itself passes for me but like you I get errors and a
segfault with level=10.  I suspect that tests for like the wx_spec
will not pass with the new versions of wxPython.  So I am not sure if
all the tests are supposed to pass at all.

I would say go ahead and check in the stuff to get weave working with
numarray while passing weave.test().  If you break any of our code I'm
sure we will holler. :)
