This is not a problem. There are no formal acceptance criteria
for a scikit, nor a central authority making such decisions ---
it's mostly a question of commonly agreed on naming conventions
for packages. As long as your package has something to do with
science, I'm sure nobody will object to its existence.

Naming your package scikits.something may give it a small
boost in visibility, but apart from that, it's just an ordinary
Python package.
