I just ran into an issue with py2exe -- my app failed because various numpy sub-packages weren't included. However, I wasn't using them. But it failed because numerix imports them, and they weren't included because it imports them with __import__
Anyway, I can work around this, but it made me wonder: is it time to retire numerix? We all should be using numpy anyway.
note that the docstring is out of date, too:
1. The value of numerix in matplotlibrc: either Numeric or numarray
2. If none of the above is done, the default array package is Numeric.
Because the matplotlibrc always provides *some* value for numerix
(it has it's own system of default values), this default is most
likely never used.
To summarize: the commandline is examined first, the rc file second,
and the default array package is Numeric.
