Just installed NumPy 1.0 release (binaries only) on my Win'95,
and have problems:

1. Installation procedure do not update paths in registry;
2. Two files are missed - "FFt.py" and "RandomArray.py";
3. Mlab.by still have wrong import (Numeric.Random) and
   reference (old?) - to Numeric.Random.random_sample()
   (when I replace them for RandomArray.random() it is Ok)
4. Why tests for LA, FFT, RANLIB are not included into

5. (optional) why diff() is not included into standard set of
numeric functions?
and maybe other common knowns as integ(), interp()
and so on, from Yorick for example are also good candidates?
