Yes, if you use Numeric 24 or greater (Numeric will construct a Numeric
array from the scipy array using the array interface). The CVS version
of Numeric is the best code so far. There will be a Numeric 24.2 in a
couple of days to fix some 64-bit bugs in Numeric 24.1

Definitely in full scipy. It is definitely a topic of interest. I saw
some good talks at SciPy 2005 on it.
There were some tools like cow in scipy before the switch. The cow
subpackage has been moved to the sandbox area because it has not
received attention for a while. There are some newer tools emerging to
replace cow. I'd like to see them in scipy before long. They are
avaialble as separate packages already.
I don't recall the names immediately. Go to the SciPy 2005
presentations and you will see a few talks of relevance.
