Maybe I've been spoiled by using Linux, but my answer to this sort of
thing is always "just install scipy already". If it's not already
packaged for your operating system (e.g. Linux, OSX, or Windows), is
it really difficult to compile it yourself? (If so, perhaps post a
report to scipy-user and see if we can fix it so it isn't.)
