Double-right.

I think that the current CVS SciPy is ready for 0.2 release, but
what we are lacking is a robust framework for making SciPy releases.
This framework should include:

* generating SciPy tar-balls, rpm, deb, etc. packages
* exposing them at SciPy web or ftp sites
* verifying that they are complete and work with various systems
  and setups --- autotesting.
* updating scipy web site: instructions for download, installation, usage,
  bug reports, etc.

I am currently (re)working with SciPy autotesting support that Eric,
David, and Skip started earlier.
