When would one take that approach vs adding to the sandbox in SVN? Specifically, I'm wondering what method would be preferred for the time series module I plan to contribute shortly.

The sandbox is preferred if it is at all possible. The reasons that it might not
be possible include one not having write access to SVN, or the license of the
code being inappropriate for scipy. And even then, using the wiki should be
reserved for short scripts and probably for just a short time; it is not a
generally good mechanism for distributing code.
