[arch-dev-public] Dropping python-numeric

python-numeric is old, replaced by python-numpy and has had issues on 
x86_64 since python-2.5.  These issues are far more noticeable in 
python-2.7 (as in python-numeric just does not work...), so I intend to 
drop this package from the repos.

Two packages in [community] depend on it: freevo, gogh.   When 
python-numeric gets dropped, so will these packages unless their 
maintainers (or someone else) do something about it.  Both look like 
they can use numpy instead...
