I take it that's the packages yum wants to remove if you issue a 'yum
remove python-numeric', because many of those packages don't depend
directly on python-numeric, they depend on pygtk2, which depends on
python-numeric. I believe a more accurate representation of the direct
deps comes from repoquery. For core, that amounts to only:

$ repoquery --repoid=development --whatrequires python-numeric
pygtk2-0:2.9.1-3.x86_64

For extras:

$ repoquery --repoid=extras-development --whatrequires python-numeric
pygsl-0:0.3.2-5.fc5.x86_64
fonttools-0:2.0-0.6.20050624cvs.fc6.x86_64
gnome-sudoku-0:0.4.0-6.fc6.noarch
python-matplotlib-0:0.87.2-2.fc6.x86_64
rpy-0:0.4.6-11.fc6.x86_64
pygame-0:1.7.1-6.fc6.x86_64

So bumping to numpy in core doesn't look like it'd really be all that
difficult, and there really isn't even that much fallout in extras.
