We have a lot of users who would love to get access to numpy on our OSX and 64bit windows versions of our product.  This is only going to become a bigger problem in the future since we will probably only have a 64bit version for Window in the next version of Rhino.

I concur. Given the wide range of third party science and math libraries that uses numpy, completeness will bring us a good start even if it implies paying a high price on speed.
