Thanks for voicing your opinion.

We should be clear about what we are talking about.

1) There is already a convolve in NumPy (it's the same one that was in 
Numeric).  It seems the one in numarray is compatible.


I'm talking about the following numarray functions (please let me know 
if I'm missing anything).

* all of nd_image --- currently this is in scipy (as ndimage) and can 
already be built and installed as a separate package --- we need
                                     to work out distribution, though.

* all of image/
           combine.py
                     median
                     average
                     minimum
                     threshold
           _image.py
                     translate


* from Convolve/
            iraf_frame.py
            lineshape.py
            Convolve.py/
                   correlate2d
                   convolve2d
                   boxcar
                              


For now, I will port the image and Convolve packages and place them in 
the scipy/sandbox area.  From there we can figure out what to do with them.
