Because Scipy should only receive general-purpose and good-quality code,
and its release cycle is not that fast.
The scope of Scipy is mainly to contain "basic tools for numerical
What you typically have at first is "research quality code" --- it works
for your particular problem, but it might not do everything necessary,
may actually be a poor way to solve the problem, you are not 100% sure it
has no bugs, and you haven't tested it for other problems. Refining it
from this point onwards takes quite a bit of effort.
You typically would like to publish your code now and not wait for a year
before it's out.
