I am strongly opposed to mixing computations into NumPY.  Why is 1-d  
interpolation good to have inside of NumPy? why not nd-interpolation?  
why not fft? or SVD? or some linear algebra thing?

Python is good because of it lets you have a lot of granularity.

NumPy should stick to what it's good at.  And it should be very good  
at a small number of things, namely it should be a library for  
efficient storage and access to data that is well represented by N- 
dimensional arrays.
