This would mean moving all scipy packages (at least those that contain
extension modules) to some scipy subdirectory, say, lib. This is to
prevent importing those packages when importing scipy from its source

Hmm, there might be also people who checkout scipy to their home
and then try to import scipy while being in home directory.
One cure for this is to rename world/scipy to something else. 
Or better yet, people should checkout scipy using scipy_all instead of
scipy, this should be mentioned in "Using CVS".

I think just adding 

  &chaco &kiva &trains &freetype

to scipy line in CVSROOT/modules should be enough, nothing will be lost
