In principle, yes, but they are not concrete enough to announce a  
time schedule.

At the moment, the NumPy API is still changing in details, so it  
remains a moving target. The other problem is that there is array- 
dependent code everywhere in MMTK, which has to be checked line by  
line for NumPy incompatibilities. That's a lot of work that produces  
no publications and not even any immediate benefits - in other words,  
I cannot make this a priority task.

In fact, for the immediate future (in particular Python 1.5, with  
which Numeric has some problems) I will probably provide an updated  
Numeric for MMTK users. That is still a lot less work than switching  
to NumPy.

Konrad.
