[SciPy-dev] Period table?

Jeff, this indeed sounds cool. Kind of a *naturally organized*
data framework for atomic, spectral, and other data. Kind of
atomic google? Going on with your impressive list,
does it make sense to integrate into the search engine
a computational engine to *compute missing data*?
E.g., atomic/spectral physics engine to compute intensities
for spectral transitions using the run-time computed wavefunctions,
and/or the neural network engine/estimator (based on available data).
