Probably not. We'd want to build the docs from source just like Debian
I thought of perhaps a middle ground. We leave the python-numpy source
package as it currently is, providing a python-numpy-doc binary package that
disables the matplotlib extension. We'd add a new Ubuntu-only universe
package that built, e.g. python-numpy-doc-complete which could include the
matplotlib extension. It might be tricky to work out the exact details, since
a naive approach would have file conflicts. (E.g. could add a binary package
conflict or install the docs into a different location).
I don't know that I'll get to this for Natty, but in any case, this bug is
tracking the issue:
Thanks everyone for your input.
