Sorry, I should have said 'Gaussian process regression', which is the
full name, and is an equivalent to Kriging. Gaussian processes in
themself are a very large class of probabilistic models.
AFAICT, PyMC does not have any Gaussian process regression, and it does
seem a bit outside its scope.

Names, jargon, ... all this can be terribly confusing.

Thanks for your input,
