Er, I didn't listen to the whole thing, but there are some references
to numpy being difficult to install under platforms other than windows
(arguable I guess), I got the impression the speaker was conflating
the enthon distribution with scipy, and he says at one point that
numarray is the successor to numpy.   Not fud exactly, but a bit
misleading.
