Isn't this something you want to avoid? Functionality in two different  
packages: a small kit of functions in NumPy, and (eventually) another  
large toolkit in scipy. One package only, would be more convenient I  
think.

I agree with Gaël that it's not really consistent with the NumPy/SciPy  
philosophy either. :-).
So, I would prefer to see this nice functionality in SciPy rather than  
in NumPy.
