I think you may want the OLS model in scipy.stats.models:

import numpy as N
import scipy.stats.models as SSM

covariates = N.random.normal(size=(100,3))
intercept = N.ones((100,1))
design = N.c_[covariates, intercept]
data = N.random.normal(size=(100,1))

model = SSM.regression.ols_model(design)
results = model.fit(data)

results.beta

The models package is still being developed, but it already does the
basic stuff,

Best,

Matthew
