Right, sounds good.

My greatly-thought-out plan ;-) is to just over-write the old with the new.

The trouble I suppose is that the interfaces do change (in keywords and 
stuff) for some of the function calls in scipy's version of these things. 

So, I'm not sure how to handle that.  A better solution might be to have 
new names for the core sub packages.   Perhaps we should call fftpack   
ffts  and linalg  linear  in the core distribution.

Then people would always know what they were caling, instead of my badly 
thought out current plan.
