Perhaps all discussions of the core stuff could go to numpy-discussion 
and the applications and libraries go to scipy-discussion. That 
segregation often doesn't work and you still get all the cross-posting 
anyway. But I would think that it would be important to have the core 
element highlighted in the name since that user base will be bigger 
than the scipy one by necessity.
