Hi,

I needed this as well for some macroeconometric estimators, and at the
time I had problems with the ctypes implementation listed IIRC. I
wrapped the lapack routines using f2py and you can find the standalone
code here.

I will try to make a pull request against scipy this week. See the
notes in the INSTALL file for a difference vs. MATLAB.
