I have an NSIS exe installer of almost 1.5 Mb including Qwt
documentation which uncompresses to 9 Mb (the doc is also
available on the web).

PyQwt has an option to compile and link the Qwt source statically
into the Python module.

Problem is that my installer requires  numpy (http://numpy.scipy.org).

PyQwt works without numpy, but I like to find the fastest method
(faster than the sequence protocol) so that PyQwt uses numpy when
a user has installed numpy (there has been talk about an extended
buffer protocol, but ...).

When do you plan to release PyQt-4.3?
