documentation also be free.
Obviously if the _basic_ documentation is not free, this will
dramatically reduce software uptake.
And I think we all also agree that there is no problem of any sort
with not-free documentation that expands in a useful way on the basic
So, just to clarify - does Fenando win his bet (was it dollars or

basic documentation for scipy.base?
Thanks a lot,
