  Yes, it exists! It's in MLab.py. You have to add 'from MLab import
*' to the top of the Benchmark.py file.

  This means Jim has removed the MLab support from the default Numeric
library. Is this ok with people? I don't mind, but we're going to have
to let people

  Can I make a suggestions: can we avoid the 'from X import *'
construction in the numeric package where it's not speed critical
(??)- it makes finding the source of definitions a pain.
