I am sorry to persist, but as far as I can see, including an LGPL
(rather than GPL) package, with wrappers, is not incompatible with the
scipy license.  I may have misunderstood the license, but if I
haven't, then a policy of not including LGPL code will put an
unnecessary hurdle in the way of scipy users.  I can imagine there is
a reason to prefer that option, but I wasn't sure what it was - hence
my earlier question...

Best,

Matthew
