I cannot afford to use the current svn (i.e. non-release) versions, but 
I will switch to numscons when the next releases will be made. An 
alternative to distutils is a good thing, especially if it's easily 
maintainable and configurable (i.e. adding support for newer compilers 
or changing whatever compilers flags, macro, etc. should be something easy).

Does this means that all future versions of numpy and scipy will be 
built (default behavior) using numscons ?
