The main motivation for sticking it into Scipy would be a bit different
--- since the build and distribution infra is in place for Scipy,
putting it in scipy.linalg makes it more easily available for a larger
number of people than some random 3-rd party module.

We already ship low-level f2py bindings, so I don't see a reason for not
shipping Cython ones too.
