I'm almost done with numpy.  I'm trying to get tests to pass, right now...

Focus on full scipy.  Especially, the __init__.py file.   Should we move 
the Package Loader Class out of the numpy/__init__.py file or not? 

I've split out old scipy.base into


but both namespaces will be in numpy

so from numpy import xxx, yyy

should work as a replacement for from scipy.base import ***

In numpy I could just search and replace scipy->numpy,  but in full 
scipy this will be a bit trickier I think.
