Hi Nathaniel,

Will you be providing portable Linux wheels aka manylinux1?

Does this also open up the door to releasing wheels for SciPy

While speeding up "pip install" would be of benefit in itself,
I am particularly keen to see this for use within automated
testing frameworks like TravisCI where currently having to
install NumPy (and SciPy) from source is an unreasonable

Many thanks to everyone working on this,
