Until now, I'd managed to be completely oblivious to the fact that
atlas support was a variant in numpy. What are the drawbacks of
building numpy without atlas? The advantages of not having to build
atlas and gcc are obvious and considerable, at least to me.

Given that py26-gtk and py26-cairo depend on numpy, keeping build time
down is quite a legitimate concern, so I too wonder whether -atlas
ought to be the default.
