Agreed, no more than scilab is taken to be a matlab clone (which it
isn't).  It's just a union of python and lab, something that brings up
ideas of science and experimentation.

BTW, on another thread I just got reminded of the name John Hunter and
I started using years ago for our workshops, which I've also kept at
Berkeley for various activities: py4science.  I own all the domains
(org, net, com) and would be happy to transfer them if that name
sticks.
