Not possible. ACM owns the copyright of software published in its TOMS 
magazine, and the ACM software license allows use "solely for academic, 
research and other similar noncommercial uses".


Such software cannot be included in Scipy.

Scilab, or anyone who uses Scilab in a commercial setting, is actually 
violating the copyright of the ACM if it includes this code.
