I guess the point of the question was, in what way should numpy/scipy be 
improved in order to get the same usability at those cases, according to 
you ? It's not as obvious as you make it sound, and there also are for sure 
some advantages in the ipython/scipy stack over matlab's prompt, 
usability-wise. Any experiences which helps in improving it is thus useful
