[SciPy-user] io.read_array slow

I noticed that io.read_array is really slow compared to a python 
while/readline/split loop (about 5 times slower). I believe to remember that at 
some time it was written in C but when I looked at the source of scipy 0.3.2 it 
seems to be pure python. Is there a evident reason why it must be that slow or 
are there maybe plans to rewrite it in C?
