Note that weave is not going to vanish even if it happens that nobody
steps up and it's removed from Scipy. Rather, it will simply be split
out to a separate Python package --- which however will likely not
receive further attention from our side.

In your own code, it should then be enough to change

	import scipy.weave

to something like

	import weave

and make sure the `weave` package is installed locally.
