Yes, I was going to suggest that it really is not a big deal to support 3.1,
as far as I see it by my experience with Travis tests on numpy PRs
in the last half a year.

We can compile it like we do for 2.4, or we can even provide a prebuild
binary and just install it in the Travis VM each time.

So I'll try to provide a PR which implements testing of 3.1, unless
someone beats me to it.
