Very well regarded!

I'm confused as to what this means.

Clearly there is no consensus here, but I vote for something like 
numpy.finance or scipy.finance. Whether it's numpy or scipy seems to be 
a factor of how it's maintained and distributed, which I'll leave up to 
the folks that maintain and distribute...

Yes, it's only a few functions now, but don't we hope it will grow?

And that doesn't preclude those folks that want a flat namespace from 
importing them into a uber-namespace (more on that in another note).
