Yes, that's exactly my point: if we don't have CRAN-like system, it
does not mean we won't have to do its work, only that we will have to
do it manually instead. And building installers for every scikit is
actually much easier than building scipy or numpy installers (because
of the dependency; most scikits do not depend on anything but

If we could have access to one mac VM and one windows VM, it would
relatively easy to have a batch job building nightly binaries for
every scikit (it is mostly a matter of getting numpy and scipy
installed + a few tools), and then uploading them automatically on
