Just to make it very clear: numarray-0.4 and up require Python-2.2 or
Up until numarray-0.4 (released in November), that was not the case,
and numarray ran (and was tested!) on Python-2.0 and higher.
The desire to increase C-level Numeric compatability and to improve
simple indexing speed led us to a C baseclass, which is only supported
in Python-2.2 and up.
