no, because numpy is the successor of python-numeric ...
and python-numpy is much better/faster ...
and I need python-numpy with python-matplotlib in this combination ...
and the sun is shining today ...

look here: http://numpy.scipy.org/
Numeric was the first arrayobject built for Python.  It has been quite 
successful and is used in a wide variety of settings and applications.   
Maintenance has ceased for Numeric, and users should transisition to NumPy as 
quickly as possible.   There is a module called numpy.oldnumeric.alter_code1 
in NumPy that can make the transition to NumPy easier (it will automatically 
perform the search-and-replace style changes that need to be made to python 
code that uses Numeric to make it work with NumPy).
