Excellent. I wrote the dopri5 wrappers and had adding this stuff on my
todo list. Unfortunately, the time I get to work on scipy is currently
vanishingly small, and will be for the next month or so. After that,
if no one else beats me, then I will look at your patch and try to get
this integrated.

Yes, I use this a lot in my fortran code and it would be a nice addition.

Thanks for the patch.
