That's not what scikits is intended to be. scikits would be an entirely separate
package. Allowing subpackages of scipy to be separately installable is another
effort, and one that is stalled. The approach I took didn't pan out.

Write up a wiki page about it and attach the file to the page. If there's more
than one file (say you want a README or a LICENSE or even a test suite), go
ahead and use the Python Package Index and write up a wiki page on scipy.org .
