Can I put in a good word for Fortran?  Not the language itself, but the 
available packages for it.  I've always thought that one of the really 
good things about Scipy was the effort put into getting all those 
powerful, well tested, robust Fortran routines from Netlib inside 
Scipy.  Without them, it seems to me that folks who just install the new 
scipy_base are going to re-invent a lot of wheels.

Is it really that hard to install g77 on non-Linux platforms?
