I had a little trouble understanding what you meant above.
So just to be clear...

If you offer the code now under a BSD license, that
will be acceptable to SciPy.  Additionally, I cannot
imagine a project (including GPL projects) who would
find the BSD license a problem.  That is one of the
great things about the BSD and MIT licenses!

Also, just to be clear, if you release as BSD and
later wish to also release your code under another
license, you can do so.

Finally, anyone would be foolish to use the code
without your permission, and once you give your
permission your are licensing the code, so you
may as well be clear from the start.
