Joe, I know I fall squarely into one of the lists of people who
promised but never came up with any docs.  It has not been easy.  Over
time, the number of projects I handle increases and the amount of
available time only reduces.  I've almost completely fallen behind on
newscipy/newcore and am only barely keeping up with discussions on the
m/l.  Sorry.  I just hope I can do some justice by spreading the good
word about Python/SciPy.  Hopefully, more folks will get excited about
the possibilities and contribute.

cheers,
prabhu
