What about http://projects.scipy.org/numpy/ticket/2108? Someone needs to at
least answer the question of how much of datetime is unusable on Windows
with the current code. If that's not a lot then perhaps this is not a
blocker, but we did consider it one until now.....

Of the other tickets (http://projects.scipy.org/numpy/report/3) it would
also be good to get an assessment of which ones are critical. Perhaps none
of them are and the branch is in good shape for a release, but some of
those segfaults would be nice to have fixed. Debian multi-arch support too,
as discussed on this list recently.
