Has anyone actually done this for a non-trivial package? What stops  
me from even trying scipy.core is the large number of incompatible  
changes, even though they are mostly superficial. I cannot give up  
Numeric compatibility because all of my user base is using Numeric,  
and will likely stick to Numeric at least until scipy.core is out of  
beta, possibly longer. In the meantime, I would have to maintain two  
versions of all my code (nearly all of my Python modules are  
concerned by some of the changes), which is not something I am  
looking forward to.
