As of build 368, the OS image includes the "Numeric" Python library. "Numeric" is obsolete, having been replaced by "NumArray", which is also deprecated in favor of "NumPy", which is current. Programs written for "Numeric" should be trivial to convert to "NumPy", and the authors provide automated tools for converting Python code from one to the other.
Unless there is a specific reason to continue using this obsolete library, it should be upgraded.
