No, we're still trying to keep scipy as a whole BSDish.

If there is an LGPL library which you wish to provide, it would provide an 
excellent seed for Fernando's "scikits" namespace package. We would be happy to 
provide the infrastructure on projects.scipy.org.

Of course, every time this topic comes up, I make the same offer, but so far, no 
one has done anything about it.
