+1 for changing the recommended citation to Guide to NumPy now.

I do think that we're kind of wasting those citations though. I'm not an
academic, but for those contributors who are, citations of a paper that is
indexed (counts towards h-index etc.) can be very important. So probably we
should find the time to write a paper, with Travis still as first author
but with all core devs & major contributors on it.
