Apologies for sounding like someone who is against Sage. Just for the
record, I really like Sage and do promote it quite a bit over here.
I think we are digressing. My point was I never thought that scipy is
itself a distribution and Robert's comments seem to justify my stance.
Python(x,y), EPD and Sage all are and Sage also does a whole lot more
than just bundle stuff. So bundling PDE tools in scipy doesn't seem
like the right solution to me. Thats all.
