It has been moved to the sandbox because it has not been completely ported to
use numpy, yet. You will have to build scipy from source and uncomment the
appropriate line in Lib/sandbox/setup.py to have it install as part of the scipy
package. However, it is pure Python, so you can just copy it from the source
distribution to the appropriate location, too.

We should probably strike that item from the description until we get it in the
main package again.
