The main issue is that there is no easy way to get a working
implementation of blas/lapack for windows 64 bits, nor a working,
freely available fortran compiler.

This is not so much a limitation of numpy/scipy, but rather one of
lack of open source tools maturity on that platform. As Intel license
requires developers to get a license of their tools, that's not an
acceptable solution for the official version of numpy/scipy.
