+TODO for scipy.stats.models
+In converting the bspline.so from a weave build to a C extension, we
+found several things that should be fixed or looked into more
+thoroughly. Hopefully we can dedicate some time to this effort at the
+Scipy Conf 2008. However, many of these items should be addressed
+before stats.models goes into a release of scipy.
+* Run pychecker on the stats.models and fix numerous errors. There
+ are import errors, undefined globals, undefined attrs,
+ etc... Running the command below in stats/models produced 140+
+ # Run pychecker on all python modules except __init__.py
+ $ grind "[a-z|_][a-z]*.py" | xargs pychecker
+* Address the FIXME issues in the code.
+* Determine and cleanup the public API. Functions/classes used
+ internally should be private (leading underscore). Public functions
+ should be obvious and documented. Packaging should be reviewed and
+ cleaned up.
+* Update documentation to scipy standards. Especially adding example
+ sections showing how to use the public functions.
+* Tests! Robust tests are needed! Of the subset of tests we looked
+ at, most only checked attribute setting, not the results of applying
+ the function to data.
