I have finished blas wrappers. Well, there is still lots of work to do
with tests and wrappers but at least now everything is covered that
is in linalg. Except ger routines but they are not show stoppers, I hope, 
and can wait.

Travis, can we start replacing linalg with linalg2? 
May be first removing linalg to linalg1 in CVS, then linalg2 -> linalg,
and if everything works fine we can remove linalg1 from CVS.
What do you think?

I could not find new build instructions that Fernando put together from
the scipy site anymore. What happend to this document? Does anyone has a
copy of it?

Source (tar-ball) distribution builds and passes all tests (currently 320
for level=1) with Python 2.1 on Debian Woody. With Python 2.2 only some
weave tests fail if the test level is high.
