Thanks for that.  Last time I looked at numpy (for Python3) it 
was available in source only.  I know, real men do compile, but 
I am an old man...  I will compile if it is unavoidable, but in 
case of numpy it does not seem  a simple matter. Am I badly 
mistaken?

euclid has another attraction - the source is readily available, 
not too burdened by backward compatibility issues and relatively 
easy to follow, though I "managed" to get lost in it   :)
