Thanks for the link.  I wasn't aware of it.  I guess it may well be
faster than the scipy code, but harder to maintain - the scipy code is
pure python.  We also don't - at the moment - have full matlab 5
writing capability. As it stands we could not incorporate libmatio
because it is LGPL. - but maybe a wrappable option for a scikit...

Best,

Matthew
