Did you mean "lack of support of real-to-complex FFT in fftw3"? I'm
pretty sure fftw3 has that support (see
http://www.fftw.org/fftw3_doc/Multi_002dDimensional-DFTs-of-Real-Data.html#Multi_002dDimensional-DFTs-of-Real-Data
)

Another question: Does the fftw3 wrap in scipy.fftpack support
multithread (and therefore multiple processor cores) by default?

Thanks.
