This sounds like a great idea.

Given that the 'learn', 'image' and 'statsmodels' projects have dropped (or
will soon drop) the 'scikits' namespace, should the 'signal' project not
bother using the 'scikits' namespace?  Maybe you've already thought about
this, but if not, it is something to consider.
