That's ironic to me -- while the solution to a lot of "freezing"
problems is to include everything including the kitchen sink -- I
really hate having to do that. With lazy imports, you *may* have to
hand-include some stuff (or the while package -- that's actually
pretty easy), but without lazy importing you *have* to include
everything -- worse, as far as I'm concerned.
In fact, bumpy aside, I've occasionally needed a tiny module from
scipy for an I"m Im bundling, and I've ended up having to hack away at
scipy to pull out what I needed without getting all sorts of stuff I
So I vote for lazy imports in Scipy too!
