I don't do this enough to know this answer to this question. But we had a
critical mass of past C# projects to serve as a guide that it's been a
relatively low effort to get the C# APIs up and running (e.g., click this
button to deploy).

That was the state of things (no numpy or pandas) last time I checked. And
C#'s pandas-like approach to DB tables is good enough that I haven't felt
the need check again recently.

The point of all of this is that in those situations, have a numpy-like

That would be very interesting indeed.
