Yes, in fact, that is what it is doing, but the loop is set up to get
a value every `dt` time units.  If you want just the final value,
eliminate the loop, and just give the final time as the argument to
test.integrate.

For example, the following computes the solution to dy/dt = -y with
y(0) = 1 at time t=10:

-----
In [34]: def func(t, y):
   ....:     return -y
   ....:

In [35]: solver = ode(f=func)

In [36]: solver.set_integrator("lsoda")
Out[36]: <scipy.integrate._ode.ode at 0x2b59350>

In [37]: solver.set_initial_value(1.0)
Out[37]: <scipy.integrate._ode.ode at 0x2b59350>

In [38]: result = solver.integrate(10.0)   # Get the solution at t=10.

In [39]: result
Out[39]: array([  4.53998024e-05])

In [40]: np.exp(-10)
Out[40]: 4.5399929762484854e-05

In [41]: solver.successful()
Out[41]: True
