Before an alpha, there are several things which I consider a blocker for
a release and would like to fix (and seeing fixed):
    - http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/scipy/ticket/244 -> fft gives
wrong results with some axes parameters
    - http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/scipy/ticket/691 -> valgrind warnings
    - http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/scipy/ticket/688 -> fftpack revamp
    - http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/scipy/ticket/725 -> arpack
crashes/gives wrong result on Mac OS X

For windows binaries: taking the same approach as for numpy would work,
but would give a big installer (~40 Mb). I don't see any other approach,
except just linking with netlib (having a net installer sounds like a
support nightmare with all the proxy, firewall, etc...)
