I have two candidates already installed:

Description: NumPy is a general-purpose array-processing package designed to
           : efficiently manipulate large multi-dimensional arrays of
           : records without sacrificing too much speed for small
           : arrays.  NumPy is built on the Numeric code base and adds
           : introduced by numarray as well as an extended C-API and the
ability to
           : create arrays of arbitrary type.
           : There are also basic facilities for discrete fourier transform,
           : basic linear algebra and random number generation. Also
included in
