[SciPy-Dev] Pythonic Simulink clone... - how much interest?

I have used National Instrument's "G" graphical programming language
(LabVIEW) extensively in industrial settings internationally. Loops
and complex switch/case type code seemed to me to be, hmm, difficult
to maintain or follow program flow - especially for large industrial
programs. It also appeared to me that bad programmers could easily
write much worse code in G than in other languages, but that may just
be residual frustration talking. My personal opinion...
