[Numpy-discussion] Gnu Scientic Library

A very complete set of special functions is already wrapped by Travis
Oliphant. But there are numerous other functions in GSL which would be
worthwhile to connect to NumPy. Look for the cephes module.

One benefit of using such a general library covering different areas
is, that with one form of interface a whole slew of functions can be
wrapped which also make the packaging a lot easier. Also I think the
library is  desinged with wrapping to other languages.

Just to mention another library with a similar scope, but which is
older, perhaps more mature there is also SLATEC from netlib.
