Good enough, thanks. I'll include some of this then. It seems to me like
there's a need for a solid book/tutorial on scientific computing with python
- description of existing tools, but making a justified choice of a suitable
'best' one for real-life work. Laundry lists are semi-useless because they
leave to the users the task of trying everything out there.
- documenting the scipy core in detail. The existing tutorial is good, but
missing parts. This would obviously mean extending, not rewriting, the
- presenting workflow suggestions, with real-world examples of how to achieve
this efficiently. This includes interactive work, C/C++/Fortran integration,
plotting/visualization, making all of this batch and gui-less-friendly, etc.
And then, we need to build a mathematica-notebook-like environment for python,
so we can work, write text and equations, plot and print finished documents,
all from within a single system.
So much to do, so little time...
