[SciPy-Dev] Does Matlab need to be MATLAB(TM)...

Thanks, guys. Not that your opinions aren't valuable, but it is a matter of
legality that I'm concerned about, and we do have people on-list who seem to
make it their business to worry about these things, so hopefully one of them
will chime in as well.

Mathematician: noun, someone who disavows certainty when their uncertainty
set is non-empty, even if that set has measure zero.
Hope: noun, that delusive spirit which escaped Pandora's jar and, with her
lies, prevents mankind from committing a general suicide. (As interpreted
by Robert Graves)
