[SciPy-user] scipy data mining ?

I'm currently using a nice Java based data mining package called Weka 
(essentially as a black box as I don't have time to learn Java)  but was 
looking for something more python/scipy friendly to switch to as I'd 
prefer more interactive use. I found a python package on the web that 
potentially looks pretty nice (Orange - http://www.ailab.si/orange) but 
given that it uses GPL (and also given the recent discussion on license 
issues) and doesn't look to have made any effort to be numpy/scipy 
friendly I was wondering if anyone was aware of a more scipy friendly 
effort. Should someone (maybe even me...) be talked into contacting the 
Orange developers and seeing if they'd be interested in a switch to BSD 
and a gradual evolution towards integration with numpy... ?
