Sounds like a great idea to me. Even a bit familiar :-)

The lead developers of both OpenBLAS and BLIS are currently at UT
Austin: http://shpc.ices.utexas.edu/people.html
...and it turns out that this is also where SciPy will be held in
July. Might be a good opportunity for numpy/scipy folks interested in
these matters to sit down in the same room as them and hash out some
kind of shared plan of action.

(NB: I'm told that BLIS now has full multi-threading support, and that
they are working on runtime CPU detection and kernel auto-selection
right now.)
