+1 keep ndimage in SciPy
+1 please clarify what you mean by image modules. Do you mean to be
inclusive of ndimage?

Image processing seems pretty generic and fundamental. It's useful
throughout many fields including pathology, medical imaging,
astronomy, remote sensing, computer vision, multimedia, enviromental
science, and meteorology. When I first started using SciPy, ndimage
was the reason I downloaded it. I'm sure quite a large number of
scientists depend on it. I guess before I argue any further, I'd ask
you to clarify what you mean.
