Putting even something as simple as

weave.inline('std::cout << "hello\\n";')

and other one-liners like

x=linspace(0,1,10)
weave.blitz('x+1;')  # this doesn't work either

would help keep it on the radar (yours or anyone else's).  With a codebase the 
size and complexity of scipy, we really need the test harness to be as tight 
as possible (not that I have any authority to say this: ipython is 18.000 
lines of python and not ONE line of testing code; it's like flying a 747 with 
no instruments and the cockpit windows painted black...)  But hey, do as I say 
and all that ;)


Best,
