Speaking of which, is that still stuck on the 64bit issue?
Bug 2251 - NumPy support for BioPython
 I was not driving the issue of NumPy support because in its current state, NumPy seems to have as many advantages as disadvantages compared to Numeric. In addition the NumPy documentation is not free while the Numeric documentation is, so currently in my opinion the balance is in favor of Numeric. The situation changes when the NumPy documentation becomes freely available this summer (at the SciPy conference). Then the scale might tip in favor of NumPy, so we should revisit the issue then.


You rock. That's why Blockbuster's offering you one month of Blockbuster Total Access, No Cost.
