+1

The whole SciPy installation thing is HUGE! I now I still don't use any 
of SciPy because I can't get it all built. Is it yet possible to build 
SciPy on Fedora core 4 without lots of painful machinations?

When numpy was called SciPy.core, there was a lot of talk about how 
SciPy needed to be broken up into individual packages, particularly the 
Fortran and non-Fortran ones separated. It was a good idea then, and it 
still is.
