Hi,

The state of including symeig to scipy is the following: lib.lapack 
contains all wrappers in symeig except for sygvx,hegvx lapack routines 
(that enable to compute only a range of eigenvalues of generalized 
eigenvalue problem). When these get wrapped, I'll patch scipy.eig so that 
it'll use more efficient lapack routines to solve eigenvalue problems of 
symmetric/hermitian matrices. However, one can use lib.lapack routines 
already to solve eigenproblems as quick as symeig.
