PEP 209 - Multi-dimensional Arrays

This PEP was written 30 or more months ago.  It appears to set out 
design objectives for
what is becoming numarray.

The original ArrayType and Array seem to have become NDArray and 

The use of __init__ seems to have been deprecated in favour of factory 

The numarray pdf file gives a good picture of numarray, but it is 
difficult to link
into the main Python documentation, which is HTML oriented.

Is there any intention to update the roadmap for numaray in the light of 
experience or is this still the design direction?
