Hey John,

I am hosting a NumPy/SciPy sprint this week at UC Berkeley and among
other things am hoping to make some progress on cleaning up the
various interpolation/spline code in SciPy as well as continue
removing the scipy sandbox.  Do you have any more plans for your
sandbox.spline code?  Any thoughts on where it should go or what still
needs to be done?
