As the author of the VTK weave wrapper, I object. I can't revert since I 
do not have SVN access to scipy/numpy.  What the VTK wrapper for weave 
does is let you embed c++ code which operates on a VTK Python object. 
This is not something that TVTK does or provides for at all.  I think it 
is useful functionality that is not available anywhere else and should 
not be removed.
