I am a bit muddled by this thread.  Right now, scipy.stats is not in 
scipy_core, but in scipy proper (and newscipy).  Robert had said earlier 
he wanted scipy.stats removed from scipy_core;  does he mean that 
scipy.stats was formerly intended to move from scipy to scipy_core, and 
he no longer wants this to happen?  At this point I want to put in a 
good word for scipy.stats.ppcc_plot, ppcc_max, and their cousins.

What is the consensus about which packages from scipy move to the core?  
I take it that

Perhaps the main cause of my muddle-ment is whether we're talking about 
scipy_core and scipy SVN trunks or the newscipy and newcore branches at 
any given moment.  I see a bunch of new stuff in the newscipy sandbox now.

Eggs sounds like a really nice technology.  How do we feel about making 
it the default way to distribute prebuilt scipy binaries?
