I'm using nd_image extensively. Considering that SciPy seem to install much 
easier these days than I remember I would be just happy to put them in to 

Some numarray people prefer a transitional "special place". I remember that 
there was a discussion maybe a year ago of making SciPy so modular that 
(some?) sub-packages would be installable completely independent anyway - 
that would be the best :-)
