[Numpy-discussion] Request for comments on a new setup.py for Numeric

I've always found the Numeric setup.py to be not very user-friendly.
So, I rewrote it. It's available as patch #1178095

Basically, all the editing you need to do is in customize.py, instead
of touching setup.py. No more commenting out files for lapack_lite
(just tell it to use the system LAPACK, and tell it where to find it).

Also, you could now use GSL's cblas interface for dotblas. Useful if
you've already taken the trouble to link that with an optimized
Fortran BLAS.

I didn't want to just through this into CVS without feedback first :-)
If it looks good, this can go in Numeric 24.0.
