    I think we should rather build upon scipy, rather than numpy, if we
want to build upon an existing name. Numpy is low-level array
manipulation, scipy is all the fancy math that goes above, so it make
more sens to derive a name on scipy. Besides scipy.org is already a good
rallying point for scientific computing with python

    How about scipylab ! :->
