Even those of us who are developing downstream aren't necessarily
rushing to hand-roll all the dependencies. Our users certainly aren't
and the alternatives of abandoning support for earlier versions of numpy
or having a bunch of version tests aren't appealing, either.
I am somewhat surprised by the notion of breaking API compatibility
without changing the major version number.
