There is a module called convertcode.py (in scipy/base) that will make
nearly all of the required changes. We used it to convert all of scipy
over and it was pretty effective.
I can understand an installed base may find it more difficult to
switch. That's why we are working hard to get scipy core out of beta as
soon as possible. Immediately, we are really looking for people who
are willing to run their code so we can track down remaining problems.
