If I did, it would be 1.4.1RC, not 1.4.0, because officially 1.4.0 does not exist any more because of the ABI problem.  There wouldn't be any problems within the Enthought python environment, but anyone using numpy from my GDAL, or a different numpy with my GDAL, in other Python distributions would then run into the ABI problem.

The problem is in Enthought's python, for using the retracted numpy, and they need to update their numpy (which could be a while if they don't want to use RC versions).  I'm afraid I can't support using numpy 1.4.0.
