Thanks for getting the beta out!

The release notes say Numpy 1.3 or greater is needed - is this
correct? Above you say 1.4.1 is needed. I think "support for
Python 3 in Scipy might not yet be included in Scipy 0.8" is too
ambiguous. Just say 0.8 will not be compatible with Python 3, but
we expect the next version (0.9?) to be compatible, if that's the
