Hi,

I moved from Matlab to python about half a year ago and I love it.
Scipy is the reason why this is possible at all for me. But it always
annoyed me when I read "from scipy import *"  or "from pylab import *".
As it says in the python ZEN: "Namespaces are one honking great
idea -- let's do more of those!", and not less...

A big +1

Cheers,
  Almar


I love scipy and
