Numpy appears to be the official merger between Numeric and Numarray.

In general you'd hope PyPy will eventually grow ways to reuse important 
bits of C-based Python infrastructure for the implementation of 
non-Python language. Or can it already do so through rctypes?

It sounds a bit odd to use Numeric for the implementation of R that way, 
but it'd make sense to be able to do so, right? Naturally PyPy wouldn't 
be able to use its magical optimization abilities on those bits, though.
