Looking at the page, I think it might be nice if the table of contents included
links to the individual projects as well so you can get a sense of the variety
of applications using numpy/scipy at a quick glance without scrolling through
the whole page of dense text.

ie something like this:

   1. Middleware
         1. Python Imaging Library
         2. Matplotlib
         3. PyOpenGL
         ...
   2. Applications
         1. Inkscape
         2. PyPedal
         ...

This can be done automatically by making the headings level 2 headings instead
of the current level 4 (ie. == Heading ==  instead of ==== Heading ====). And
perhaps for applications where it isn't entirely obvious what it does based on
the name, a brief (less than one line) description in brackets beside the
heading? (eg. "Inkscape (vector graphics editor)")

I'm not a professional wiki designer by any means, so take this for what it's
worth. Feel free to use or ignore my suggestion as you see fit :)
