You should use the svn version. Numpy 1.3.0 can be built under VS 2008
64 bits, but scipy 0.7.1 cannot (because of fortran, mostly), and svn
scipy requires svn numpy. For numpy, you should use the 1.4.x branch,
this one is the stable one for now.

It is not strictly required, but that's strongly recommended, in part
for the reasons you mentioned. There is no advantage in using
distutils to build compared to numscons if your toolchain is supported
that I can see anyway,
