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

For extras:

$ repoquery --repoid=extras-development --whatrequires python-numeric

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.
