The text reads very well!
FWIW, just some small comments:

The *VERY* seems too strong to me -
Personally I would not call myself as "very experienced"
and still I celebrated the 100th build of scipy new core
(on one machine, where I could automate the stuff - no counters
on the others ;-)
Of course I have to admit, that I really learned a fair
bit during the last years of going through the various stages of scipy ;-)

Therefore I propose to omit the "VERY" to get more testing.

((if one uses gcc (<4.0), g77, a plain ATLAS and a normal fftw2
on a normal machine things are pretty clean already))

should really the tarball be recommended at this stage, or
wouldn't svn (or just http://new.scipy.org/Wiki/Download) as only pointer)
be sufficient?
