Can't PyPi re-direct -- so they can actualy be hosted somewhere else, but
"pip install numpy" would still work?

IIUC, The Intel libs have the great advantage of run-time selection of
hardware specific code -- yes? So they would both work and give high
performance on most machines (all?). Much as I am a fan of open source,
there doesn't appear to be anything  as good out there.
