Do you mean that NumPy/SciPy would no longer include f2py source code
or that NumPy/SciPy would no longer use extension generation tools at

If you haven't done so already, register f2py.org immediately (and
possibly the .com as well).  Many registration services (e.g.
godaddy.com) allow you to forward the URL to another URL.  For
instance, http://pyamg.org currently redirects to
http://code.google.com/p/pyamg/.  If you chose to run your own host in
the future, then you can just point the DNS record for your domain to
the host's IP.
