Correct. I assume Charlie meant that the win32 binaries he compiled
were compiled with numpy-0.9.6. Since the various numpy releases are
not binary compatible, if you are using matplotlib-0.87.2 with numpy
on win32, you will need numpy-0.9.6. But I believe the win32 binaries
also have Numeric and numarray support compiled in.

We have talked about this but there are no concrete plans at this
point. We would like to see widespread adoption of numpy first. I
think this is feasible in a 6 month time frame, as most of the
lingering issues (eg, nd_image) are rapidly falling into place.
