scipy does certainly not depend on Boost. Blitz is used in weave, but I
don't know if this is mandatory (and it includes the blitz library); I
think that actually, a C++ compiler is not even mandatory. Maybe I am
missing something, but why the need for a matrix library for basic
neighbors algorithm ?
