That would be brilliant - I have been using numpy for a while now
(and Numeric for a bit longer ;-) and we also use wxPython
a lot in our research code demonstrations. Therefore a fast and simple
exchange between numpy and wxpython is *very*  much appreciated!

In the same spirit: I also use PIL quite a lot, so a fast
transfer of data from/to numpy arrays to/from PIL images would
be great!

Just some end-users cents ;-),

Many thanks, Arnd
