Requiring numpy requirement to 1.5 on master?

As pointed out in #1650, we have a bug on Python 3.x handling
file-like objects that are UNIX FILEs, but not actual filesystem
files, such as the sockets used for a urllib HTTP request.

[https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/pull/1650](https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/pull/1650)

As Christoph helpfully points out, Numpy has already solved this

problem (since 1.5.0), so it would be easiest to just use their
solution.

For 1.2.x, I think we shouldn't update the Numpy requirement (which

is currently 1.4) – there, I’ll have to port Numpy’s compatibility
functions to our code base. But for master, I’d rather just use
Numpy’s stuff so all of the intricacies of this are handled in one
place.

(And as a detail, it isn't until Numpy 1.7 that a "CloseFile"

function is provided, so even on master, we’re stuck copying some
code over).

Any objections?

@mdboom - that sounds like roaring agreement to me. :slight_smile:
Lets go for it.
