Numba Vision Stuart
View vision.txt
What should Numba be?
* Numba, as in the code base, should really be an extensible toolkit for writing compilers, the default user facing front end of which is _an_ implementation of a compiler for Python and (maybe!) NumPy.
* It needs to be sufficiently extensible to cover the spectrum of use cases, including but not limited to:
* Typical users, just wanting to @jit some numerical functions (many many users, the most common use case)
* Those providing libraries for domain specific use (e.g. researchers - TARDIS-SN)
* Those providing libraries for use in scientific computing as part of the numerical python scaffold (e.g. pydata-sparse)
* Those writing more advanced libraries containing their own data types etc (e.g. AwkwardArray)
* Compiler extenders wanting to write and explore new compiler use cases/needing a custom compiler (e.g. Bodo, omnisci-db)
* Hardware vendors wanting to extend Numba support to their custom silicon (e.g. NVIDIA, Intel)

Val's Numba Vision -- Anarcho Utilitarianism
View vision.txt
Numba Vision (Anarcho Utilitarianism)
* A kick-ass Python compiler. (Money, Fame, ...)
* A tiny Numba core, barebones library, with useful
abstractions/contracts/interfaces (Essentialism)
* A compiler library to build other compilers on top of. (Framework/Structure)
* A platform for compiler profiling and debugging research. (Creativity)
* A platform for exploring novel scientific algorithms. (Innovation)
* An ecosystem of Numba open extensions/add-ons/utilities/libraries for
