[Numpy-discussion] Should we make the master branch backward compatible.

Hi All,

Mark Wiebe has proposed making the master branch backward compatible with
1.5. The argument for doing this is that 1) removing the new bits for new
releases is a chore as the refactor schedule slips and 2) the new ABI isn't
settled and keeping the current code in won't help with the merge. Mark
thinks it is possible to keep the datetime types along with the new half
types while restoring backward compatibility, and if so we won't lose
anything by making the change. I'm in favor of this change, but I may have
overlooked something. Thoughts?
