Sorry if I'm being somehow between offtopic and rude, but if your
students are so lazy that replacing a file means using Matlab, therefore
your students do not deserve to be... students.
You're going to teach programming to those guys, so, if they still are
not, they *will have to* be computer savy. Explain them why do you think
SciPy is better than NumPy (free, open source, fast updates, a complete
programming language behind, multiplatform etc.etc.) and let them trust
If you are almost unconvinced of using SciPy yourself and you want to
hide warnings, you're even less likely to get your students to use it.
