An alternative which I've been trying to find time for is to use the
RSPython module (http://www.omegahat.org/) for embedding R
(http://www.r-project.org/) within Python.  It needs some work on the
object translation, but other than that, would be yet another way to
do (an extremely wide range of)  statistical analyses in SciPy.

I'm first looking at this for Zope, in the context of report
generation and "literate analysis" (a statistics-based take-off of
literate programming), but SciPy would be a definitely interesting
target, as well...

best,
