I think I'll put it in a scikit for now, so that it gains more
visibility without being a problem for scipy.

However, we will need to seriously address the f95 issue in the future
as more and more high quality numeric code is produced in this
language (for very good reason, allocatable arrays make for much
neater and robust codes when one needs to dynamically adjust meshes
etc.). This BVP solver is just one of many examples I use.
