Another option, as suggested recently elsewhere, would be to write a
nice installation tutorial with both  the "quick and dirty" way
(plainly install the distributed version) and the optimized way
(linking to Blas, Blas goto and ATLAS). As far as  I know, there are
no good simple explanations on how to build numpy with these links.
