What I meant was: would the plugin "slots" be decided beforehand, or
could we manipulate them at runtime? I.e. what I would really enjoy
doing is define arbitrary ufuncs and plug them in (not only the blas
funcs and a select few others).
Either way, this is good news for distributors -- it would make it so
much easier to provide an optimised version of scipy to windows users,
who can't easily compile it themselves.
