Yes, I know. I should have said so, I just wanted it to be explicit for the
sake of completeness. The only minor difference is that I was considering the
possibility of moving some of today's 'full scipy' into toolkits, but that
would be a decision for later.

Well, in my eye sandbox carries a connotation of 'experimental, staging area'.
That's not what I think of the toolkits as. I see those as standalone,
fully released packages which build upon scipy's core functionality for
specialized tasks. I think the sandbox can remain there, but it serves a
different purpose than the toolkits, at least in my mind.
