Having so many packages is good for developers, but not very good for consumers as people have to collect a lot of different packages together to get what they want.   Some of this pressure is being alleviated by "distributions" of Python, and I expect that trend will continue.   But, it is still useful for SciPy to grow "fundamental" libraries like a DWT.

It does beg the question though, if that is the path we are going down would it be better to implement a CWT in the same style as pyWavelets to have uniformity in use if they are both integrated in SciPy.

That would be ideal, I think.   But, I don't know how much work it would be convert one to the other style.
