Hi,

I wasn't quite ready to announce this but given the current discussion I
wanted to mention that we at STScI are planning to generalize and adapt
pysynphot for use as part of the astropy universe.  I've added a link to
the project on the wiki page Adam has created.  When I am slightly further
along on the project that I am now I will be sending out a message to the
astropy community describing our development roadmap and soliciting input
on additional requirements.

Cheers,
Chris
