While PyPy is a most admirable endeavor, I can't imagine that it can
resolve this problem.  I'll be most pleased to discover that I am
wrong, so please correct me.

Is scientific programming a target usage of PyPy?

In particular, how could large arrays of numbers of homogeneous type
be handled outside the Numeric-type libraries in such a way that
efficient computation is possible and also provide a guarantee the
memory mapping of the data to allow interoperation with compiled

Surely a reimplementation of BLAS, Atlas, Lapack, etc is not part of
PyPy's mission. So how is the success of PyPy going to have great
relevance to Numeric/numarray/numpy users?
