I don't like the fact that scipy.{bool,int,float,complex,object,unicode}
conflict with builtins. That was a bit surprising at the prompt.
Unfortunately, they don't cleanly inherit from the Python counterparts.

In [48]: from scipy import *

In [49]: s = 'This is text.'

In [50]: u = unicode(s)

In [51]: len(u)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
exceptions.TypeError                                 Traceback (most
recent call last)

TypeError: len() of unsized object
