Early on in the development of SciPy, Tim Lahey was trying to get Mac OSX stuff
I have no idea how far it went.

Development in this area is about to ramp up. I'll be discussing this shortly
on the group.

Well, you'll just have to rectify this then won't you. ;-) OSX patches would be
very much welcomed. The algorithmic code should move over fine. The plotting
(as always) may be more of an effort.
