+1 to a numpy/scipy/matplotlib stackexchange-type site.  We've had a lot 
of success with ask.sagemath.org (running on the askbot [1] software, 
which is nice since it is open-source and you can host it and modify it 
if you want).

It looks like a python stackexchange site was just proposed:

Thanks,
