There has been recent discussion about this.  Check the python-dev list 
archives I think.  It's unlikely that all of numeric/numarray could go 
into the Python stdlib because there still is disagreement between the 
two camps as to the module architecture.  However, there does seem to be 
some agreement at the level of the basic array object, so it may be 
possible that at least the array object itself might join the stdlib in 
the not too distant future.  I suspect there's more detailed discussion 
of this in the numeric/numarray lists.
