Well, you don't *have* to define NPY_NO_DEPRECATED_API. If you don't you
can access the array as before using the macros even for future versions of
numpy. The only way that could cause a problems is if the array structure
is rearranged and I don't think that will happen anytime soon. On that
account there has not been any discussion of reverting the changes.
However, I'd like f2py generated modules to use the new functions at some
point and in order to do that numpy needs to supply some extra
functionality, I'm just not sure of the best way to do it at the moment. If
I had a good idea of what you want to do it would help in deciding what
numpy should provide.
