hi brian,

thanks for the clarification. yes we are talking of two different levels of
new users.

In summary, there are three mostly-orthogonal issues:
>
> 1) The need for the flat namespace for truly beginning users.
> 2) The need to consolidate/organize the existing messy and overlapping
> namespaces of numpy/scipy/matplotlib.
> 3) The need for lookfor type functionality for all users.
>
> It is possible that 1 and 2 could be solved in a single package.
> There could be well organized io, linalg, algo, etc submodules and an
> "all" module that imports everything for users that need/want it.
>

i like this approach and i agree with thomas that most of 3) could be solved
via documentation. we might just want to be clever about it and have it in
the docstring+code :)

cheers,

satra
