First of all, this is *fantastic*.  OSX has been a major pain for us
here in terms of distribution, so I am extremely happy and grateful to
you guys for putting this out.

Two minor requests: any chance in the next release, you could update
ipython and matplotlib?  You are shipping 0.8.1 and 0.91.2, both of
which are fairly old and the current versions of both do have
reasonably useful improvements and fixes (ipython has threading fixes
that impact plotting, and mpl has all the new mathtext code that gives
good math rendering without needing latex).

In any case, a big cheer from me :)

Regards,

f
