doesn't look like one, either). However, if you want to do it, well, do
it. :) It can also be possible I'll contribute to it in the future, if
you take into consideration entries about software that uses SciPy. I'd
also broaden the scope to take into account NumPy, Matplotlib and in
general all science things doing Python. Another interesting requirement
could be that algorithms, software etc. presented must show at least one
open-source (as defined by OSI) implementation.
The only thing I am really worried is the requirement of an article
along with documentation for inclusion of code into SciPy. This can have
