C++ in scipy mostly is generated code (sparsetools) + blitz. There is
also the problem of code reformating: for example, ohloh seems to
believe I am an advanced Fortran developer from scipy, whereas I barely
know how to code an hello world; I guess this is because of my removal
of arpack while the license issue was discussed and solved. IIRC, I did
use the svn method to put back the code, so in theory, it should be
possible to realize I did not code any of the above.

Also, svn is pretty dumb about renaming (it is just an atomic copy +
rm), so if you remove a file, I would not be surprised if you become the
author of the whole file for svn in that case. I mean, I am far from
being the main author of scipy for any meaningful measure of contribution.
