I like it.

How should we handle fftpack.  Should we use f2py and modified Numeric 
wrappers?  Or use the f2c version Numeric currently uses.

Also, I've been working on the stats package.  How should we handle 
RandomArray.  Should we take all that's good from RandomArray and place it in 
our stats package?   

My inclination is to subsume RandomArray, FFTPACK, and LinearAlgebra into 
scipy so that all we rely on is the core array facilities of Numeric.
