Hi Ralf,
Ok concerning this point.


In addition, I have been looking to suggest additional solvers,
essentially simpler scheme, that would thus allow to easily switch
between "complex" (lsode, vode, cvode) and basic schemes (Euler,
Nicholson, etc...)

I came across some code on the Montana Univ.'s Computer Science dpt:
http://wiki.cs.umt.edu/classes/cs477/index.php/Creating_ODE_Solver_Objects 
and asked Jesse Johnson (the responsible for that class) what is the
license for that code. Here is his answer : 

        Any thing that you find on those pages, you may use. However,
        I'm not sure how to go about officially giving the code a
        particular license. Can I add a license to the wiki, stating
        that it applies to all the code therein?
        
        PS It is fantastic you're doing this. I've often thought that
        scipy.ode could use some improvements.

He is cc'ed of this mail, could anyone concerned about scipy license
requirements and more generally in code licensing answer him ?

Regards
