My mistake here.   numarray is already using a modified-BSD-like

To keep open the possibility that numarray might someday be included in 
Python, we don't want any part of numarray to be GPL'ed.   This is a 
little overkill, because Packages probably wouldn't be on the immediate 
list of things to submit anyway.   Still,  it keeps life simple and us 
out of trouble.
