Oh yes, I had forgotten about that.

A user's perspective:

1. I do not accept the "not 'sciency' enough" argument.

2. I understand the need for separate/separable bug 
databases, and this seems like a general problem to be 
addressed for scikits.  I would hate to see scikits
start spinning off to new locations based on this
consideration.

3. I think a tendency for projects to "cluster" around
SciPy is very healthy for SciPy as a whole.  At the
*very* least I would hope to see such projects list
themself at the (nonexistent!) page
http://www.scipy.org/SciPyPackages.

By the way, <URL:http://www.scipy.org/SciPyPackages/NumExpr>
will need to be changed ...

Cheers,
Alan Isaac
