[Numpy-discussion] New packages

Well, we talked about it some but didn't want to break existing code. To my
recollection nobody has suggested the trick you suggest here. I think it
would work, although there are cases where people import Precision in a
given module but not Numeric (the numeric objects they deal with get
returned by C or Fortran calls). Anybody see any real downside here?

-----Original Message-----
Is there any reason why Numeric never became a "New" Python package with a
__init__.py ?


PS: I have been adding __init__.py to my installation for a long time now
it works just fine. For those who want to be able to import directly we
extend the python path in __init__ so that after an import Numeric all .so
would be directly loadable
