Sounds good here.  I'd like to help fixing some things like those listed 
in ticket #529:

    * Implement more functions, like exp, ln, log10 and others. 

    * The setup.py is too terse, and seems to support only the gcc 
compiler. More work should be done to include support other compilers, 
and most specially MSVC. Also, MSVC should be directed to compile with 
optimization level 1 only, in order to get reasonable compile times. 

But that can wait until numexpr is in Google Code.

It's nice to see numexpr taking flight as a stand-alone project :)
