Clearly there is no consensus here, but I vote for something like
numpy.finance or scipy.finance. Whether it's numpy or scipy seems to be
a factor of how it's maintained and distributed, which I'll leave up to
the folks that maintain and distribute...
Yes, it's only a few functions now, but don't we hope it will grow?
And that doesn't preclude those folks that want a flat namespace from
importing them into a uber-namespace (more on that in another note).
