I'm interested in using scipy and probably matplotlib to analyse and 
plot data from a large-scale ocean model whose data are held in hdf5 

The most obvious way to read (and write) data to hdf5 would seem to be 
through the pytables package. From my (admittedly cursory) reading it 
seems like pytables works with numarray rather than numeric.

Again, I may have misunderstood, but I gather that scipy is 
incompatible with numarray but uses numeric.

If this is indeed a problem, is it likely to be solved by the 
development of numeric3/scipy.base?
