Yes, and sadly, one that's required for quite a few packages still. Not
all upstream sources are lib/lib64-friendly yet.

Which ones? :)

Don't get ahead of yourself. We're only talking about a single project
that decided to put their header files in libdir here, not some
universal thing.

No. If you ask me, headers should go in /usr/include. But I didn't write
numpy. Someone should educate them to the error in their ways. Or
package around it.

Sounds like we're going to look at replacing python-numeric w/numpy
sometime after the test1 release, so I'm sure someone will be talking
with the numpy developers soon...
