Hi Alex, making your project a scikit seems like a good idea. I
actually tried to use mwavepy about two years ago for some basic matching
network design. Back then I ran into a number of issues and in the end gave
up, but it looks like your project came a long way since then. Whether or
not you make it a scikit, definitely move to github though! That would have
made the difference for me in submitting a few patches instead of just
hacking around the first issues I encountered.

In the end I went back to using the free Dellsperger program (
http://fritz.dellsperger.net/) plus LTSpice. The former has a nice GUI and
some plotting options like stability and VSWR contours that are quite
handy, so if you're taking feature requests consider this one:)

Cheers,
Ralf
