Mh, I can't exactly understand this:

$ diff -urNad numpy-1.6.1 numpy-1.6.2rc | diffstat | tail -1
 2718 files changed, 390859 deletions(-)

does it mean that the only thing the RC has done is to remove a lot of
stuff? that's weird because the build process went all just fine and
unit tests are passing ... /me confused?
