Indeed, I fully agree with Travis.

What Belongs In Scipy could be also stated as Who Is Maintaining What In 
Scipy. If developers could state which packages they are interested in
maintaining and developing in future, that would ease making a decision 
of moving certain parts in scipy either to sandbox or droping them 
altogether.

And may be we should start a detailed review process for each Scipy 
package to define which parts of it is state-of-art,
partly-implemented, needs-tests, old-but-working, broken, obsolute, etc.
That would also help people jumping in into scipy development process more 
easily.
