Hopefully you got my earlier message about this.   Since I CC'ed 
numpy-discussion and never saw it there,  I've included it below.  But, 
assuming you saw it,  I think what you need is in CVS now.

My earlier response:

Someone else asked for this recently, and the solution is half-way 
implemented in CVS now.   I'll finish it this morning so that it works 
the way you're used to, but the next "official" numarray release is 
still a ways off.   So, if you still want to port now, here are the 

1.  Numarray CVS was working as of Friday on Windows, Linux, Solaris, 
and Tru64.

2.  Use the "Numeric compatible" portion of the C-API.  This API is a 
subset of the Numeric API which may cause you trouble.  Let me know if 
it does.  Don't use the "native" NDInfo based APIs because they're 
headed for deprecation.

3.  The version you'll be working with has not yet been widely used and 
may have significant bugs I don't know about.  It does pass all its unit 
tests on all our platforms.
