Will do if and when I get some time.  At the least I'll mail the list.

Im doing that as I write.  I found a problem and will try to commit a
fix and will write about it later.

Hmm.  Actually isnt it better to do:

cd <scipy_cvs_dir>
./setup.py clean
./setup.py build

instead of rm -rf on build?  I'm not sure about this.
