[Slackbuilds-users] Numpy upgrade

Numpy arrived at version 1.9.0 and I prepared a SlackBuild for it. 
Unfortunately starting with this version the compatibility layer for the 
old nummeric and numarray modules got dropped. At least for me this is 
not good, since I'm using some third party modules which still rely on 
it. Since this may be valid for others, I prepared and think to also 
submit a numpy-legacy SlackBuild for building/installing the latest 
version (1.8.2) which offers the compatibility layer(*). Does anything 
speak against this?

Best regards,

(*) To my knowledge, one cannot install both versions of numpy at the 
same time. Thus there will be a conflict notice in the READMEs.
