#1429: pip install fails

 I have been trying to get scipy to install using pip [http://www.pip-

 I would like to be able to install from a requirements file that includes
 both numpy and scipy. Unfortunately this fails, as pip trys to run scipy
 before numpy is installed. In the scipy setup file are the imports:

   from numpy.distutils.misc_util import Configuration
   from numpy.distutils.core import setup

 Would it be possible to avoid using these numpy modules in setup.py? This
 would make the setup process more robust

 For more discussion of the issue on the pip tracking system see:
