Who says numpy doesn't provide it:

/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/numpy/core/include/numpy/arrayobject.h

Yes, the tweaks are minimal, just adjusting paths in extensions and
import statements. Since the transition is that minimal/trivial
numpy/numeric/numarray folks argue that if it hasn't been done by now,
then the projects are rather sleepy (or not really caring about using
numeric/numpy at all).

I haven't looked into pygame, but chances are that pygame can be built
against numpy, too, or if not that the pygame developers would gladly
accept any patches the autoconvert tool may spill out.
