You can replace python xy installed packages but it's necessary to
watch out for dependencies.

If you replace numpy with the mkl version, then you also have to
replace scipy with the mkl version, as far as I understand.

I initially installed python xy on a new computer and updated many
packages since, using standard python not the python xy updates.
The only problem I have is that I have some incompatibilities between
QT, pyQT, pyside, spyder and the ipython qt console, the later doesn't
work in my current setup.
