If the micronumpy array object exposes the array interface, it would
be easy to intermix standard numpy and PyPy loops on numpy arrays (and
then it's probably overkill to redo the whole of NumPy in PyPy?).
IIRC, this is the approach we took with the micronumpy GSOC project a
year ago, but I haven't been following the project since then.
