Absolutely.

We'll get you SVN access so you don't have to distribute this as a
patch. In the meantime, can you turn this into a tarball? scikits is
not a monolithic package. It's just a namespace. You don't have to
patch the main scikits repository (or even *use* the main scikits
repository) to provide a scikits package.
