hi there, I had started to look at scipy.special some time ago 
(generalizing the zeta function so that a full polylog implementation 
can be attempted, a la mpmath), but my bandwidth shrunk virtually to nil 
for this task....
I'd be willing to be listed for this module, in the hope that it would 
drive me to allocate more time to this.
