You'll need to find out how those codes are licensed.  Scipy uses a BSD-type 
license, so only code compatible with such a license can be shipped with scipy.

But it may be possible to ship the _wrappers_ for non-BSD libraries with scipy 
(with building disabled by default), leaving it up to the users to install and 
build the non-BSD code by themselves.  This would have to be discussed further 
if it were the case (I think in the past an fft library, perhaps FFTW, has 
been handled in this manner).

If you are actually going to get started, it might be a good idea to summarize 
the pros/cons of the various libraries you've found before jumping in.  Others 
might have good feedback (I'm not an ODE expert) on which solution to pick.
