That text is rather out of date - if you are familiar with the history of
Numeric, numarray and numpy you'll know that the old module used with "import
Numeric" was called Numerical Python or NumPy for short. This shorthand was
used in lots of documentation (not just in Biopython). I think the choice to
call the third generation of the array packages numpy has caused a lot of

See http://numpy.scipy.org/#older_array

We had updated the Biopython website and other bits of documentation, but had
missed this one.  Thank you for point this out.

P.S. Supporting numpy instead of Numeric is Biopython Bug 2251.
