Thanks Aron. Ruby reads pretty much like Python, with a few : and => mixed
in, so no problem.

So they do add all possible sse flags, like:

def gcc
    set_cpu_cflags 'core2 -msse4', :penryn => 'core2 -msse4.1'

If you do a regular Framework build with configure/make steps, this doesn't
happen (I think). So the question is what to do now. Perhaps this can be
fixed in scipy, does anyone know? And are other projects using distutils
likely affected by this? If so, it should be fixed in Homebrew anyway.
