+1 for float64
I have lots of code overriding the int defaults by hand which were
giving me grief with hand-written extensions (which were written
double-only for speed reasons). I'll be happy to clean this up.
I completely understand Travis' concerns about backwards
compatibility, but frankly, I think that right now the quality and
community momentum of numpy is already enough that it will carry
things forward. People will suffer a little during the porting days,
but they'll be better off in the long run. I don't think we should
undrestimate the value of eternal happiness :)
Besides, decent unit tests will catch these problems. We all know
that every scientific code in existence is unit tested to the smallest
routine, so this shouldn't be a problem for anyone.
